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 effort has been accelerated by the availability of more vaccinations and enhanced visibility of vaccine availability to States and UTs, allowing them to better manage and streamline the vaccine supply chain.
As part of the statewide immunisation campaign, the Government of India has been supplying free COVID vaccines to states and union territories.
In the next phase of the COVID-19 immunisation 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.
