Hyderabad | 3rd March 2021
Telangana Legislative Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy and Deputy Speaker T Padma Rao Goud, and Legislative Council Chairman Gutha Sukender Reddy today received their Covid-19 vaccinations at the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS).

Speaking on the occasion, Srinivas Reddy said, "The Covid-19 pandemic has hit every section of society and has wreaked havoc on all aspects of everyday life over the last one year. To end the pandemic now and to slowly go back to our normal routines, we must all participate in the ongoing vaccination drive. We have to remember that prevention is always better than cure - it is best to take precautionary action against the disease than seek treatment after it affects us."

"It is a matter of great pride for our state that 60% of the vaccines being used in India are being manufactured here. I commend Bharat Bio-Tech for its efforts to develop, manufacture and supply a usable vaccine," he added.

The 78-year-old also said that he was feeling fine after getting immunised.

After receiving the vaccine, Deputy Speaker Padma Rao Goud took to Twitter to share a picture of himself receiving the injection in what was likely a bid to encourage the other eligible beneficiaries in the state to get vaccinated at the earliest.

Senior hospital officials, including NIMS Director Dr K Manohar, were present during the vaccine rollout.

(During the launch of the current vaccination drive, which is aimed at covering high-risk persons, many leaders and officials, including Health Minister Etala Rajender, Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar and MIM leader and MP Asaduddin Owaisi, had also tried to drive away any feelings of "vaccine hesitancy" the people in the state may be experiencing.)
