Received COVID-19 jab?
Surprisingly, Bappi Lahiri had announced on social media back in March that he had registered for the COVID-19 vaccine. However, it is not clear whether he received the first shot of the vaccine.
“I’ve just pre-registered for my #COVID19Vaccine – what are you waiting for! As soon as I found out that us over 60’s and those aged between 45-59 with a specified co-morbidity are now able to get our jab booked in, I felt a sense of relief that the end to this pandemic is in sight. It was quick & simple to register at Cowin.gov.in (link in bio) and I urge all of my friends in this age bracket to do the same!” Bappi Lahiri had written in a post on Instagram.
“Please pre-register in advance as this is much more efficient than walk-ins, which should be after 3pm. Just take your Aadhaar card, voter or any government ID which has your photo, gender and date of birth. Join me and millions of other over 60’s in pre-registering for your vaccine, today to protect yourself, your family, and India. #Unite2FightCorona #LargestVaccineDrive #VaccineVarta #CoWin,” he had added.
