New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi on Thursday took second dose of Covid-19 vaccine and tweeted: "Got my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at AIIMS today."

In a Tweet message to all, he said: "Vaccination is among the few ways we have, to defeat the virus. If you are eligible for the vaccine, get your shot soon. Register on CoWin.gov.in."

He also posted a photograph while taking the second jab.
