New Delhi: A few days after ridiculing of COVID-19 vaccines, yoga guru Ramdev has now said he will soon get himself inoculated and urged others to take the shot too.
Ramdev praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s declaration to bring India’s COVID immunisation drive under the control of the Centre by June 21 and vaccinate citizens aged 18 years or above free of cost.
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a historic announcement of vaccinating every citizen free of cost from June 21. Everybody should get vaccinated. Also, people should practice yoga and Ayurveda which will prepare a protective shield against disease and will also prevent COVID casualties. I will also get vaccinated soon,” Mint quoted Ramdev as saying.
Last month only, Ramdev had claimed that he does not need to get vaccinated against coronavirus as he is protected by yoga and Ayurveda. The yoga guru had also questioned the efficacy of COVID vaccines.
He also made a complete somersault on his reported statements against allopathy doctors. “All the good doctors are all messengers sent by God on this earth. They are a gift to this planet. But if a person being a doctor does anything wrong then that is the fault of that individual,” he said to everyone’s surprise.
