Jammu: Centenarian Sher Mohammad says he feels more confident and protected after taking a Covid vaccine shot and appeals to people to get vaccinated to save themselves from the deadly virus.
Mohammad, 118, who hails from Mahore tehsil in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir, took the jab on Thursday during an inoculation drive organised by the administration.
After getting the COVID-19 jab, I feel more confident and protected as the vaccine is the biggest shield against the deadly disease, he said.
He said people should not pay heed to rumours about the efficacy of the vaccine and instead should get themselves inoculated at the earliest.
If I at this age can receive the (vaccine) dose, I feel others shouldn’t shy away from getting vaccinated, Mohammad said.
Deputy Commissioner, Reasi, Charandeep Singh said they have been repeatedly appealing to people to cooperate with the district administration to break the chain of coronavirus.
