Sanjay Dutt gets first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, congratulates medical team for 'doing a wonderful job'


Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of India has started vaccinating citizens. Those above 45 years (with comorbidities) and senior citizens are eligible to take the COVID-19 vaccine dose in the ongoing second phase. Now, from April 1, reports suggest that people above 45, without any comorbidities, can also take the shot. On Tuesday, Sanjay Dutt took his first COVID-19 vaccine dose at a vaccination centre in Bandra Kurla Complex. 

The 61-year-old actor shared a picture on social media and wrote, "Received my first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine today at the BKC vaccine center. I want to congratulate Dr. Dhere and his entire team for doing such a wonderful job! I have so much love & respect for them & their hard work. Jai Hind!"
