Soon after the news surfaced, people started trolling the actor on social media with many questioning his eligibility to get the vaccine. He was captured by the paparazzi coming out of a vaccination center.
Internet asked if the actor was over 60
People questioned how was the 50-year-old actor able to get the coveted vaccine shot when it is people over 60 and front-line workers that are being given the priority currently. Others questioned how was the actor wearing a handkerchief instead of a proper face mask while stepping out of the center. People also questioned if the actor has any comorbidities.
Some users also applauded him for his decision
Not everyone on social media was upset about the development. Many people appreciated the move by the actor. One user wrote, "Good job Saif Bhai!!" while another one took it in a lighter note and wrote, "Now he is Safe, and not Saif." Others pointed out that the actor might be having some health conditions like diabetes or heart ailment.
Khan just became a father again

Khan is also father to actress Sara Ali Khan who was last seen in Coolie No.1 and son Ibrahim Ali Khan who is still a student at university.
A spike in COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra
Even though the Centre announced a country-wide vaccination drive last month, the COVID-19 cases are increasing especially in the state of Maharashtra. The state reported more than 10,000 cases yesterday. The national vaccination drive started with people on the frontlines but now the general public can also register themselves through the CoWin portal and the Aarogya Setu app if they meet the criteria.
