SJB MP Harin Fernando said that he has decided not to take COVISHIELD vaccine at this moment but would consider taking it at least after one million people have been vaccinated.

"I have decided not to take COVISHIELD vaccine now. Our priority should be vaccinating most vulnerable groups and frontline workers. I will take it after at least one million people have been vaccinated," he tweeted.

Meanwhile, vaccination drive for Parliamentarians commenced today at the Army Hospital in Narahenpita.
