PM to meet CMs on Monday to discuss Operation Inoculation – ET HealthWorld

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will chair a meeting with chief ministers of all states on Monday to discuss the vaccine rollout that is expected to get underway next week. This came even as Union health and family welfare minister Harsh Vardhan said it would soon be a reality to vaccinate the entire population in the country against Covid after prioritising risk groups.

“At 4pm on January 11, PM Narendra Modi will interact with chief ministers of all states via video conferencing. They will discuss the Covid-19 situation and the vaccination rollout,” the PMO said on its official Twitter handle.

This will be Modi’s first interaction with CMs following the approval of the two vaccines — Serum Institute’s Covishield and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin. He has spoken at least six times with the chief ministers through video conferencing following the Covid-19 outbreak in the country.

“In the next few days, also in near future, we should be able to give this vaccine to our countrymen prioritising those who are at risk in public and private sectors. The government has already made known the scheme of things,” Vardhan was quoted by PTI as saying.
