Sonu Sood urges health ministry to lower COVID-19 vaccine eligibility age to 25

Amidst the massive COVID-19 vaccination drive in India, several Bollywood celebs have urged the government to provide vaccines for one and all keeping in mind the increasing number of cases in the country. Now, joining the bandwagon is none other than Bollywood actor and philanthropist, Sonu Sood, who has urged the health ministry to start the COVID vaccination for 25 years and above. In a post on Twitter, the actor wrote, “I urge @MoHFW_INDIA to consider 25 years and above getting vaccinated too. With the number of cases rising and even kids getting infected in large numbers with the virus it's high time we announce the vaccination for 25 years and above. Max number of cases I come across are youngsters.' Well, with a recent surge in COVID-19 cases, several Bollywood actors have also been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus. Recently Aamir Khan’s team had shared in a statement that he had tested positive for COVID-19. Akshay Kumar was admitted to a hospital after his diagnosis, while he was shooting for ‘Ram Setu’ in Mumbai. Ranbir Kapoor recently recovered from COVID-19, while Vicky Kaushal, Katrina Kaif and Bhumi Pednekar have quarantined themselves after testing positive for the novel coronavirus. On the other hand, several Bollywood celebs have taken their first dose of the vaccine. Saif Ali Khan was one of the initial ones, followed by Salman Khan, Rajinikanth, Amitabh Bachchan, Rohit Shetty, Malaika Arora, Sonu Sood and Anurag Kashyap to name a few.
