Ramdev had earlier said that he does not need to take the vaccine against Kovid-19 as he has the protection of Yoga and Ayurveda.
Ramdev welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent announcement of free vaccination for all from June 21, calling it “historic” and appealed to all to get vaccinated.
Ramdev told reporters in Haridwar, “Get both doses of the vaccine and you will get double strength from yoga and ayurveda. Both of these will give you such a protective shield that not a single person will die of Kovid-19.
When asked when he would get the vaccine, the yoga guru said, “Very soon”.
Ramdev highly praised allopathic doctors and called them “messengers of God on earth”.
Regarding his ongoing tussle with the Indian Medical Association, Ramdev said that he cannot have any enmity with any organisation. He said that he was only against exploitation of the public in the name of drugs.
The yoga guru said that due to the tendency of many doctors to prescribe expensive branded medicines in place of cheap generic medicines, Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Kendras had to be opened.
He said that good doctors are a boon and they are the messengers of God on earth.
Ramdev also said that allopathy is best for emergency treatment and surgery.
Ramdev, who recently created a flutter among doctors with his remarks against allopathy, said that when it comes to emergency treatment and surgery, allopathy is the best and there cannot be two opinions about it.
