After this, she became the oldest woman in India to get the Covid-19 vaccine. Kameshwari did not report any side effects after the vaccine was administered.
As senior citizens are more vulnerable to Covid-19 infection that the reason they are being prioritized in the on-going session of vaccination in India.
Before Kameshwari, 100-year-old Shashikala Joshi from Mumbai was the oldest woman to get vaccinated in India.
