The recipient Mr Ashutosh stated that the message read, “Dear Vidya Sharma, you have successfully been vaccinated with your second dose with Covishield on 17th September, when India set a world record in vaccinations.”
This came as a shock for Ashutosh as his mother who is addressed to be vaccinated in the message had lost her battle to COVID-9 four months ago.
