Kohinoor Hospital has joined the vaccination drive as it has been given nod to the Covid vaccine and it has started administering vaccines for common people. Today, Senior Shiv Sena leader and former Maharashtra CM Manohar Joshi took the first jab of Covaxin to prevent the transmission of Coronavirus.
Senior Shiv Sena leader and former Maharashtra CM Manohar Joshi said, “Currently, there is a rapid surge in Corona cases. It is the need of the hour to get vaccinated and lead a healthy life, and that is the reason I have come forward and taken my first dose of vaccination.

So, one’s eligible for it and having comorbidities should get vaccinated as soon as possible.”
