Hyderabad: Brushing aside fears around the efficacy of Covid vaccines and hesitations towards them, a 100-year-old resident from Hyderabad, Jaidev Chowdhry got himself inoculated at Medicover Hospitals, opposite Secretariat, here on Monday.
A retired entrepreneur and father of Freedom Oils MD, Pradeep Chowdhry, the centenarian was one amongst the first to visit the hospital for Covid vaccine. After getting vaccinated, a happy Jaidev Chowdhry urged everyone above 60 years of age and those between 45 years and 59 years with comorbidities to embrace the Covid vaccine.
Getting administered with the vaccine is the only way to defeat the pandemic, he said, after getting vaccinated. The 100-year-old was wheeled into the hospital by his family members.
“I was waiting for this day to be vaccinated so that I can enjoy the quality of life and lead an active social life. Due to the Covid pandemic, senior citizens in Hyderabad had to remain indoors for a long time and this is a good opportunity to end this cycle. A lot of misinformation is being spread among general public about the vaccines. People, however, must come forward and get themselves vaccinated not for their own benefit but for the benefit of the entire society,” Jaidev Chowdhry said.
