More over 12.75 crores (12,75,03,205) of unutilized COVID vaccination doses remain with the states and UTs to be administered “read the official statistics.
The Central Government is dedicated to speeding up and broadening the scope of COVID-19 immunisation across the country. The national COVID-19 vaccine campaign began on January 16, 2021.
The next phase of COVID-19 vaccine universalization began on June 21, 2021. The vaccination campaign has been stepped up with the availability of more vaccinations, increased visibility of vaccine availability to states and UTs for better planning, and simplification of the vaccine supply chain.
In the next phase of the COVID-19 vaccination programme, the Union Government would acquire and deliver (at no cost) to States and UTs 75% of the vaccines manufactured in the country by vaccine makers.
According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, a total of 196.18 crores of COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered thus far.
In light of the recent increase in COVID-19 instances recorded throughout the country, the Health Ministry of India asked states and union territories on June 9 to be vigilant and rigorously adhere to COVID-appropriate behaviour.
