Sister Nisha Sharma, the nurse who administered the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said it was a memorable moment for her to meet the PM and vaccinate him.

Sister Sharma is from Punjab's Sangroor.

P Niveda, who had administered the first jab to the PM, assisted Sharma with the second one.

"I am the vaccinator who gave the first dose of the vaccine to the PM. Today, I got another opportunity to meet him and vaccinate him for the second time. I was elated," Niveda said.

"He spoke to us and we even clicked pictures with him," she added.

PM Modi took his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi on Thursday morning.

'Got my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at AIIMS today. Vaccination is among the few ways we have, to defeat the virus. If you are eligible for the vaccine, get your shot soon,' tweeted PM Modi.

The prime minister took his first dose of Bharat Biotech's COVAXIN on March 1.
