New Delhi: Actor Sonu Sood on Wednesday took the covid-19 vaccine shot. The 47-year-old actor was administered the vaccine shot at a hospital in Amritsar, Punjab as a part of the launch of 'Sanjeevani – A Shot of Life.'
After getting inoculated, the actor urged everyone to receive the vaccine shot at the earliest to curb the virus and keep their families safe for a better future.
Speaking about the same, Sonu Sood said: "I wanted to start this drive because I feel it is very important to bring that awareness among people who are still thinking whether they should get vaccinated or not. Family members should push their elder ones, people who are eligible to get vaccinated. It will only help them survive the times we are facing in the near future."
"We are doing this in many districts and a lot of villages in Punjab and different states. The awareness is not much and they still have double thoughts whether they should get vaccinated or not. That's why I wanted to get vaccinated in front of everyone and send the message across that don't think twice. We will get a lot of camps done. This is a movement that we are trying to start to increase awareness," he added.
Taking to the Twitter, actor wrote, "Got my vaccine today and now it's time to get whole of my country vaccinated. Started the biggest vaccination drive "Sanjeevani" which will bring awareness and get our people vaccinated."
‘Sanjeevani – A Shot of Life’ is an initiative to encourage people to get vaccinated against Covid and raising awareness about the inoculation drive in the country.
