Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will get a coronavirus shot in the second phase of the country’s inoculation campaign, broadcaster NDTV reported on Thursday citing sources, as many states struggle to meet targets partly due to fears over possible side-effects.

The vaccine drive was launched on January 16 with health workers receiving jabs of two vaccines - Serum Institute of India's Covishield and Bharat Biotech's Covaxin.

In the second phase, it is the turn of those above 50 and people with comorbidities to take shots.

All MPs and MLAs who are above 50 will also be vaccinated, the report added.
