India creates a record!

India has set a record by administering over 100 crore corona vaccine doses in the first 9 months of the programme.
The corona vaccination drive in India began on January 16. The Cowvishield vaccine from Oxford University and the Covaxin vaccine from Bharat Biotech were introduced. The first step was to vaccinate health workers on a priority basis.

The vaccination programme was later expanded to include frontline staff and those over 60 years of age.
It took 85 days to administer the first 10 crore vaccine doses in the country. But India was able to administer the next 10 crore doses in 45 days. Thus the next 10 crore vaccine dose targets were achieved by the Central and State Governments in a very short span of time.


Accordingly, on August 6, India reached the biggest milestone by paying 50 crore doses.
The union government has set a target of 100 crore doses by the end of December. Vaccination camps were held weekly at government hospitals and primary health centres across the country.

From time to time special camps were held across the country. In this situation, India has created a huge record by crossing 100 crore vaccine doses yesterday.


The fact that India reached the target 2 months earlier has taken all the countries of the world by surprise. It is said that even technologically advanced countries like the United States, Britain, Russia and France have not been able to vaccinate their people at this pace.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh is the state with the highest number of corona vaccines in the country. It is followed by Maharashtra, West Bengal, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated the country for achieving the 100 crore mark in the vaccination drive. The World Health Organization has also congratulated India.
