Singh also requested the public to not make negative comments about the vaccine without valid proof.

“Instead of creating suspicion and panic in people’s mind with negative comments, any individual could come up with positive suggestions regarding the vaccination drive,” Singh said.

“The vaccination programme would cover all the population in a phased manner,” he added.
