Dalai Lama takes first dose, appeals to get Covid-19 jab

Appealing to get themselves vaccinated, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama, who is revered as a ‘living god’, on Saturday took his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in a state-run hospital near his residence here in Himachal Pradesh, doctors said.

After getting the jab, the 85-year-old Nobel Peace Laureate thanked the Central and the state governments for facilitating him to get the jab at the Zonal Hospital in Dharamsala.

He appealed to all eligible, especially ‘patients’, to come forward and get themselves vaccinated for the greater benefit. “This is very important so I took that and I want to share that more people should have the courage to take this injection.”

The Tibetan administration in exile is based in the north Indian hill town of Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh.
