In a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on April 19, the government decided that all persons above the age of 18 years can get vaccinated now. The vaccination drive will begin on May 1.
On Tuesday, Dairy brand Amul shared a creative doodle celebrating the news and informing citizens above 18 to take the Covid-19 vaccine.
WHAT DOES THE DOODLE SAY?
The doodle features the Amul girl wearing a face mask. She is sitting with a board in her hand that says 18+. Next to her is a healthcare professional in a PPE kit. The professional is wearing a PPE (personal protective equipment) suit and is showing the thumbs-up sign. In the background, there is a vaccine storage unit.

Amul’s post has gone viral, and it has more than 1,600 likes. Twitter users appreciated the creativity of the team. One user commented, “We are going to participate in the History soon! (sic).”
