NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday batted for a COVID-19 vaccine for all, and said every Indian deserves a chance to a safe life.

"It's ridiculous to debate needs and wants. Every Indian deserves the chance to a safe life," he said, using the hashtag "#CovidVaccine".

The health ministry on Tuesday said that the vaccine need to be given to those who need it and not those who want it.

The COVID-19 vaccine is currently available to all Indians above the age of 45 years.
