Srinagar, April 7: Former Chief Minister and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday received first dose of covid-19 vaccine.
Omar, who is tending to his father—Farooq Abdullah— at SKIMS Soura received the jab at the tertiary care hospital, he said in a tweet.
“Got my 1st dose of the #COVIDvaccine this morning. It was a smooth & painless affair. I’m grateful to everyone at SKIMS, Srinagar for vaccinating me today,” Omar tweeted.
Farooq Abdullah, National Conference president and former three time Chief Minister of J&K, is admitted in the hospital for nearly a week now. Farooq had tested positive for covid-19 on March 30, four weeks after receiving the vaccine jab.
