At present, in India, the COVID-19 vaccination is eligible only for people above the age of 45. Several state governments have requested the Central government to bring down the age bar so as to vaccinate more citizens. Now, actor Sonu Sood who has been helping out people in need since the lockdown was announced last year has urged the health ministry to allow those above 25 years of age to take the jab.
Sonu Sood on Thursday took to Twitter and wrote, “I urge @MoHFW_INDIA to consider 25 years and above getting vaccinated too. With number of cases rising and even kids getting infected in large numbers with virus it’s high time we announce the vaccination for 25 years and above. Max number of cases I come across are youngsters.”

There has been a massive surge in COVID-19 cases in India over the past month specifically in the state of Maharashtra. Actor Sonu Sood also took the first jab of vaccine recently and also launched a nationwide COVID-19 vaccination drive called Sanjeevani: A Shot of life. It is an initiative to encourage people to get vaccinated and raise awareness.
Speaking about the same, Sonu Sood said: “I wanted to start this drive because I feel it is very important to bring that awareness among people who are still thinking whether they should get vaccinated or not. Family members should push their elder ones, people who are eligible to get vaccinated. It will only help them survive the times we are facing in the near future.”
