As India reeled under a deadly second wave of COVID-19, with massive shortages of medical supplies and hospital beds, authorities finally understood the need to rapidly vaccinate the country’s billion-plus population.
While several industrialists have taken the responsibility to vaccinate their workers, not many are daring to do so because of heavy prices being quoted by vaccine manufacturers.
Under these circumstances, superstar Mahesh Babu on his father Krishna’s birthday, has taken up an initiative of a 7-day vaccination drive for all the villagers of Burripalem which he had adopted few years ago. Working towards making Burripalem Covid free, Mahesh Babu indeed is the first Indian actor to take up vaccination drive.
Mahesh Babu’s wife Namrata Shirodkar who got two shots of vaccination affirms vaccinations are safe and effective. “I feel safe, secure and I feel I’m going to be alive. Save yourselves, your family, loved ones and people around you get vaccinated. That’s the need of the hour,” she appeals.
Netizens have been appreciating Mahesh Babu for his great initiative and are requesting others to follow him. Furthermore, they appeal the government and vaccine manufacturers to reduce the prices of vaccines, so that many come forward to lend their support.
