Saahil Uppal joins the section of people who believe that there should be open vaccination for all. The actor is not against how the government divided the drive phase, ensuring that frontline workers, who are most exposed to the virus, and then the older generation, who are more vulnerable to the virus, get their jabs first. He says, “The only way to stop transmission is getting vaccinated and I think everyone has been equally vulnerable. A lot of elderly people do not step out of the house but youngsters do for work. So, it should have been an open vaccination for all since the very beginning.”
Saahil is yet to get vaccinated. Since he is in a bio bubble, shooting for his show Pinjara Khubsurti Ka, the actor does not want to step out of it right now and put everyone at risk. Once they have a bank ready, he will take some days off, take his first dose and have ample time to get back to the bubble. He plans to do the same for the second dose as well. “The pandemic has changed the whole perspective that we have towards our life. This adversity has brought a lot of changes and transformation in my life and I am sure it is the same in everyone’s life too,” he adds.
