A 100-year-old resident of Hyderabad received his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, Covaxin, on March 1. Jaidev Chowdhry, 100, an ex-entrepreneur and father of Pradeep Chowdhry, Managing Director, Freedom Oils company, was one among the first to take the vaccination at one of the private hospitals in the city.

Chowdhry, who looked elated, said he was waiting for this day in order to enjoy a socially active life. He, however, warned against the misinformation being spread about the vaccination and requested people to come forward and take the vaccination not for their own benefit but for their family and society.

Telangana government has launched the vaccination drive for people above 60 and state health minister E Rajender too was one of the beneficiaries.
