Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has received the coronavirus jab as the country opened its vaccination programme for the wider population.
Axar.az reports that India launched its vaccination drive on 16 January, but it was limited to healthcare workers and frontline staff.
Now, people over 60 and those who are between 45 and 59 but have other illnesses can get vaccinated.
State-run hospitals will offer free jabs but people can also pay at private facilities to get vaccinated.
