SunstarTV Bureau: Kerala people will be vaccinated for free whenever the vaccine will be available, informed Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, today.
CM Vijayan said, “This (COVID-19 vaccination) is an important issue. This is one thing a majority of people are thinking now. There needn’t be any doubt. While the extent of the availability of the vaccine for people in Kerala is an issue that needs to be looked into, but available vaccine will be provided for free. The government does not intend to take money for that (vaccination) from anyone. We will take steps for free distribution,”
Along with Kerala government, other state governments also have said to vaccinate people for free, such as BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh and Bihar.
Mr Vijayan said, “The fact is that the number of COVID-19 cases is decreasing, which is a matter of relief. However, it needs to be seen if the local body polls, two phases of which are over, would contribute to increase in cases. That will be known only in the days to come.”
