Excellent news that all above 18 can get vaccinated 👍. But all our young Indians do remember this vaccination is not making us SuperMan or IronMan – just SaferMan !! Got the point 👍. We still need to mask up and be super careful – long journey ahead

Others like Anubhav Sinha and Swara Bhasker, who are known to be quite critical of the central government, also commended this new development. While Bhasker’s Twitter post read, “Finally! Yes, thank you,” Sinha tweeted, “Chalo ab May 1 se jugaad lagao vaccine ka” (Now let us start devising ways to get the vaccine as soon as possible).
Meanwhile, Ranvir Shorey’s response to this ‘Vaccine for all’ move by the government was mixed. He wrote, “Responsive, maybe, but this govt. has been taking their cues in the fight against #COVID19, instead of leading it. Not a good sign for the long road to recovery ahead. Less noise and more action is the need of the hour. #VaccineForAll.”
Producer Ronnie Screwvala requested people to mask up and stated, “Excellent news that all above 18 can get vaccinated 👍. But all our young Indians do remember this vaccination is not making us SuperMan or IronMan – just SaferMan !! Got the point 👍. We still need to mask up and be super careful – long journey ahead.”
