    Whatever the vaccine may be it the Government should ensure that the same is affordable especially to the vulnerable section of the society. Otherwise it would not serve tje purpose. The vaccine produced should be purely based on humanity grounds and shoukd not be commercially exploited. People are eagerly awaiting the new vaccine.
