He was in Amritsar to pay obeisance on the Golden Temple earlier than launching the ‘Sanjeevani – A Shot of Life’, an initiative to encourage individuals to get vaccinated and lift consciousness as ‘no one is safe, unless everyone is safe’.
Sonu is the model ambassador of the Covid-19 vaccination marketing campaign which kickstarted on Wednesday on the event of World Health Day.
“After in search of blessings of the Almighty on the Harmandar Sahib (Golden Temple), we’ve to start out this drive. I’ve carried out ‘ardas’ for the effectively being of all,” he stated.
A primary of its type initiative on growing consciousness about Covid-19 vaccination was organised by Federal Bank in the presence of Sonu Sood and Rakesh Asthana, DG of BSF on the Attari border, amid a salutation ceremony by the Jawans.
Sanjeevani Ki Gaadi was flagged off in the presence of Shyam Srinivasan, CEO of Federal Bank, Punjab Health Minister Balbir Singh Sidhu and Amritsar DC Gurpreet Singh Khaira.
The ‘Sanjeevani Gaadi’ will journey throughout the nation spreading details about the Covid-19 vaccine throughout 5 key districts, ranging from Amritsar then masking Indore, Nashik, Guntur and Dakshin Kannada.
“There was a need to remove the hesitancy among the people who are thinking whether they should get inoculated or not. The largest vaccination drive in the country against the pandemic was started today. I appeal all to get administered this vaccine at the earliest without fail, so that we may conquer this deadly disease soon and stay healthy. Always put on a mask before leaving the homes, maintain social distancing and always make sure to sanitise the hands,” he stated.
He stated that the Punjabi brethren have prolonged a serving to hand through the dismal state of affairs arising out of Covid and he was proud to be a Punjabi.
The initiative comes as India started its third part of Covid vaccination in the nation making the vaccine freely out there to these above the age of 45 years. The authorities plans to regularly deliver in beneficiaries from different age teams in what is called the world’s greatest inoculation in opposition to Covid-19.–WITH IANS
