Karnataka has so far given over 50 lakh Covid vaccinations - including both first and second doses, as per the data shared by state Health Minister K Sudhakar. The state is the 6th highest when it comes to vaccination numbers. With the second wave having well and truly hit the state, the state knows it needs to get those eligible to take the jab - and the government insists there is enough vaccine to go around.
At the private Santhosh Hospital in Bengaluru, Sharif, a businessman had taken time out to get his vaccination against Covid-19.
He told NDTV, "I think each and every person should take this medicine and have good health."
The hospital has been seeing a positive response to the vaccination drive.
Hemang, a vaccine recipient, said, "This vaccine is very much needed to protect ourselves from Covid. And as it is recommended by all the scientists and government and doctors, one must take it."
Dr Santhosh, Managing Director, Santhosh Hospital, told NDTV, "The response has been amazing. Everyday, we have been getting 100 to 200 people coming in for the vaccinations.
