Dad who is 84, needed the jab SOS & I hv to buy it on-the-spot. Hw can the EWS afford it?,” he tweeted.Since even the fully vaccinated are not immune fresh infections, Govt must act quickly to make this jab available in Govt hospitals simultaneously along with the ongoing vaccination drive• Vaccination is must but the cocktail is the need of the hour @mansukhmandviya@AmitShah— Babul Supriyo (@SuPriyoBabul) January 4, 2022Underlining that even those who have received both shots of the vaccine are not immune to fresh infections, the former MP urged the government to make this SOS jab available at state-run hospitals at the earliest.And, this is my 3rd time•First in Nov20 when I lost my Maa & somehow saved my Dad, then again in April 21 & now???? not really worried abt the positive-ness but the sheer number of individuals who got contracted & no way to find out who gave it to whom• VERY FEW r wearing Masks???? https://t.co/1XE0X4S33v— Babul Supriyo (@SuPriyoBabul) January 4, 2022Mr Supriyo said he first tested positive for Covid in November 2020.
