India is all set to begin the massive Covid-19 vaccination drive and our state, Nagaland too will begin the same exercise from January 16. This is historic as both the vaccines being approved for vaccination are Indian and will be available at very nominal rates after the first phase. People should not be reluctant to take the vaccines, as it is the only thing that will provide immunity from the dreaded virus. The health authorities also need to create much awareness about the Covid-19 vaccines and educate the masses, whether there will be side effects or not.
