Sonu Sood to start a COVID-19 vaccination drive at his hometown in Punjab

Sonu Sood was out there for the masses last year and this year too when the second wave hit our country, he stepped out again to help with oxygen cylinders, medicines and hospital beds. 

Today, Bombay Times reports that Sonu Sood is all set to host a vaccination drive this week in his hometown – Saffuwala village, located at Moga district in Punjab. In April this year, the actor was announced the brand ambassador of Punjab’s COVID-19 vaccination programme by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. And now looks like the actor is surely living up to the brand ambassador’s duty. Speaking about the same to Bombay Times, Sonu Sood said, “The idea is to get maximum people vaccinated. The problem in Punjab is that people are still shying away from getting the vaccine against COVID-19. So, my sister Malvika Sood, who stays in Moga, had a few meetings with the sarpanch of the village and set this up. She met with the villagers too. I even shared video messages to help them understand the importance of getting vaccinated. I will be sponsoring the vaccines for 18-year old plus individuals there.”

The actor with the golden heart hopes that the village of Saffuwala sets an example for other villages of Punjab and very soon the entire state gets vaccinated. Sonu Sood further added in the interview that he soon wants to hold a similar vaccination drive in Mumbai to help Bollywood folks and industry people get vaccinated. He’s truly a Good Samaritan who deserves all the respect and love.
