Dalai Lama receives first shot of COVID-19 vaccine, urges people to get vaccinated

Spiritual leader The Dalai Lama on Saturday (March 6) received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. After receiving the shot, he appealed to the public to get vaccinated for the ‘greater benefit’.

After getting it, the 85-year-old Nobel Peace Laureate thanked the Central and the state governments for facilitating him to get the COVID-19 vaccine at the Zonal Hospital in Dharamsala.

“In order to prevent serious problems, this injection is very helpful and good. Other patients also should also take this injection for greater benefit. I just took it and more people should have the courage to take this injection,” he said.

The 86-year-old, who has been undergoing self-quarantine since January last year, came out of his residence on Saturday after over a year.
