The central government announced that everyone aged above 18 can get themselves vaccinated from 1st March. But individuals aged above 18 will have to pay a token amount to get themselves vaccinated. The central government’s free vaccination drive won’t be available for them.

Coming to the topic, it is being said that the government of Andhra Pradesh is planning to spend around Rs 3000 crores on free vaccination drive.

The Jagan-led government is intending to hold a free vaccination drive on the state and vaccinate every eligible individual aged above 18.

No other state government is planning to hold a drive like this in the country.

If YSRCP government holds a free vaccination drive for all then it would set an example for other states in the country. This is a task much easier said than done though.

The chief minister YS Jagan will take the final call on the same very soon.
