Covid vaccination pace in children shows youth’s ‘sense of responsibility’: PM Modi | India News

NEW DELHI: Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday lauded the “sense of responsibility” of the country’s youth and said it manifested in the pace of Covid-19 vaccination in the 15-18 years age group that has covered over two crore children since its rollout this month.
PM Modi, who was virtually inaugurating the 25th National Youth Festival, also stated that his government’s recent move to raise the legal marriage age for women to 21 years was for the benefit of “our girls” and to guarantee that they had a job and the time they needed.
Hailing the pace of vaccination of the 15-18 years age group, he said this showed the “sense of responsibility” of the youngsters, especially witnessed during the pandemic period.
“The role of the youth in the success of our Covid vaccination programme is being witnessed altogether at a different level. We are seeing that the youth in the 15-18 years age group are getting themselves vaccinated at a quick pace. In such a short time, over two crore children have been vaccinated. This exemplifies the sense of responsibility in today’s youth and my confidence in a bright future of the country is further strengthened,” he said.
The vaccination for the children in this age group was launched on January 3.
