- Country vaccinated 82 lakh people in 24 hours
- Yesterday more than 21 lakh children were also vaccinated
- 152.78 crore vaccines have been administered in India so far
Corona cases are increasing again at full speed in the country, but the world’s largest vaccination campaign is also going on here. Earlier only the first and second doses were discussed, now booster doses have started in India too. On Monday, more than 9 lakh people have been given a booster dose in the country. At the same time, more than 82 lakh people have been given the first and second doses.
Rapid pace of vaccination in India
Now these figures also become special because India has completed 360 days of its vaccination campaign. From the lack of vaccine to the challenge of expensive vaccine, 152.78 crore vaccines have now been installed in India, finding a solution to every problem. This figure is enough to tell that now more than 60 percent people in the country have been given both doses of the vaccine.
First of all, if we talk about precaution or booster dose, then tomorrow i.e. on Monday, this third dose of vaccine has been given to more than 9 lakh people in the country. Yesterday 491013 people got booster dose in health care works. At the same time, 190383 people have taken the third dose in the front line workers. At the same time, because the vaccination of 15 to 18 year old children has also started in the country, in such a situation, the pace is now visible there too.
India began administering Precaution Doses. Kudos to those who have got vaccinated today. I would request all those who are eligible to get vaccinated. As we all know, vaccination remains among the most effective means to fight COVID-19.
