While many people commended him for leading by example, others quickly criticized him for not wearing a mask while being injected with the vaccine jab.

Despite this, PM Modi is now one of the few prominent world leaders to have got the COVID-19 vaccine. In the Group of 20, the Prime Minister of India is the ninth leader to be administered with at least the first dose.

Among the first was 71-year-old Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. US President, Joe Biden, 18 also got his vaccination. In Israel, Netanyahu was the first to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
