A woman in Mumbai, Maharashtra, received a special gift on her 100th birthday -- her first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Parvati Khedkar, born on March 5 1921, received the dose at the city's Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC) vaccination centre on Friday on her 100th birthday. She celebrated her birthday by cutting a cake later.
Amid rising coronavirus cases in Maharashtra, senior citizens have been lining up at inoculation centres to get their Covid vaccine jabs since March 1, when the centre started phase two of vaccination across the country. Over 1.94 crore people have been vaccinated in India so far, officials said.
