Puri Jagannadh has come out with a Public Service Announcement-style podcast this time. He has touched upon a relevant topic.
Questioning the rationale behind vaccine hesitancy in the country, the 'iSmart Shankar' director said that vaccines needn't frighten us. "Scientists have made it. The World Health Organization has vetted it. What more assurance is needed? We recklessly take cigarettes and alcohol without bothering about their side effects. Why do we fear something that is needed for survival?" the 'Liger' director asked.
He urged everyone to receive the vaccine if it is available.
Many old people are showing reluctance to get themselves vaccinated. Puri's podcast is well-argued.
