India opener Shikhar Dhawan had received his first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine On May 6.
Thereafter, several of his teammates, including skipper Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma, had received their first jab in various vaccination centres across the country.
Head coach Ravi Shastri was the first from the Indian cricket team to receive the vaccine. He got his first jab in the first week of March, when vaccination was made open for all senior citizens.
Last month, the government announced vaccination for all those above the age of 18 years in the third phase of nation’s Covid-19 vaccination drive that started from May 1.
