India’s Biggest Vaccination Drive #LagayaKya

With every COVID-19 vaccination, we ensure the survival of all Indians and the revival of our country. It’s time to protect each other and ourselves.


Our collective health depends on the success of our vaccination drive

Network18 Sanjeevani – A Shot Of Life, a CSR initiative by Federal Bank, aims to create awareness around Covid-19 vaccinations and mobilize efforts to ensure that every Indian is vaccinated. Our campaign will collaborate with NGOs, Government agencies and influencers to spread information and bust myths surrounding the vaccine, while enlisting donors to gift vaccines to the most deprived and worst affected Indians.

It’s time to join the movement and raise your voice for India’s health and well-being. Because no one is safe, unless everyone is safe.
