Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that individual vigilance and discipline is a great strength of the country in the fight against the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.

On his Mann Ki Baat radio show, Modi said India had achieved “an unprecedented feat” in its vaccination campaign, but warned of the new variant of the virus.

“This new variant of Omicron is under constant review by our scientists. Every day they get new data and action is taken based on their suggestions ”

“We must remember that a new variant of COVID19 Omicron has knocked on our doors. To defeat this global pandemic, our efforts as citizens are important,” he said.

Modi announced on Saturday that the COVID-19 vaccination for children between 15 and 18 would start from January 3, while the “precautionary dose” for health and frontline workers would be administered from 10 January.

He also said the precautionary dose would also be available for citizens over 60 and those with co-morbidities on the advice of their doctor from January 10 next year.
