Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama has been administered the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Saturday (6 March) at Himachal Pradesh's Dharamshala.

He received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine at zonal hospital in Dharamshala.

A video of the Tibetan spiritual leader getting vaccinated was also shared on his official Twitter account.

The development comes after the Dharamsala-based Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) had written to the Indian government, requesting it to make special provisions for Dalai Lama's vaccination.

The CTA, also known as the Tibetan government-in-exile, had asked the Centre and the Kangra district medical officer to vaccinate the Dalai Lama and those working around him at the earliest, reports Hindustan Times.

The Tibetan administration had also requested for vaccination of the whole Tibetan community living in India.
