Salman Khan administered the second dose of the novel coronavirus vaccine on Friday. The 55-year-old star, who received the first dose of the vaccine in March, was spotted at a center in Mumbai’s Dadar district.
Salman revealed in a recent interview that his parents, veteran screenwriter Salim Khan and producer Salma Khan, received their second dose on May 9, while his brother-producer Arbaaz Khan received his first dose on Sunday.
The actor went for the vaccine just one day after his much-anticipated film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai became available on various channels, including OTT and DTH networks. The film is also available on the pay-per-view broadcast channel Zee Plex.
Several movie stars, including Rajinikanth, Saif Ali Khan, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Kamal Haasan, among others, have been vaccinated.
On March 1, the Indian government initiated a national vaccination campaign for people above the age of 60, as well as those between the ages of 45 and 59 who have co-morbidities.
The Maharashtra government declared last month that it will offer anti-Covid-19 vaccines to people aged 18 to 44.
The state health department confirmed 42,582 new Covid-19 cases on Thursday, a decrease of nearly 4,200 infections from the previous day, while 850 more patients died from the disease.
