Tamil Nadu health minister, Ma Subramanian has called upon the people of the state to inoculate themselves against Covid -19. In a statement on Sunday, the state minister said that 49 lakh people in the state are yet to take the first dose of vaccine to date.

He also said that 1.37 crore people are yet to take the second dose of the vaccine and called upon the people to immediately take vaccine.

Ma Subramanian while speaking to BPNS said, “With the Covid -19 cases on the decline, people are taking the disease lightly and are not taking the vaccine. They should not lower their guard and have to take all the necessary precautions including vaccination. There must not be any lethargy in vaccinating themselves.”

He also said that the state health department had handled the third wave of Covid -19 effectively and the number of deaths was contained as people had vaccinated themselves in large numbers. Minister said that he wanted people to take the jab at the earliest and not to lower their guard.

Ma Subramanian also called upon the people to wear masks always, to keep social distance, and sanitize themselves.
