    It would be a good job if the people are vaccinated with a good vaccine and not this rubbish from China.

    Sinopharm is better than Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna...

    What happened to the consignment of Covishield vaccines recieved from Japan two weeks ago. Will that too be hijacked for the use of juniors of 'you know who' as happened with the first consignment of the same vaccine. The lesser mortals who received their first jab in February are still waiting patiently for their second dose. A desperate senior citizen of this land like no other !
