Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Regional Director, South East Asia at the World Health Organization, has described the delivery of one billion Covid vaccines in India as an extraordinary achievement. The country has achieved this huge success in 280 days and perhaps as a result of this, the number of new cases has come down to less than 100 in many states. Not only this, the figure across the country has also remained below 15,000 continuously for the last 5 days. More than 1 crore vaccines were administered in the country for many days and on the birthday of PM Narendra Modi, health workers had given more than 2.5 crore vaccines giving him a gift. Talking about the state-wise figures, so far more than 12 crore 21 lakh vaccines have been administered in Uttar Pradesh.

Not only this, corona vaccine has been given to every adult citizen in states like Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir. Not only this, in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh, all adults have received both the vaccines. At least one dose of the corona vaccine has been given to 75 percent of the country’s adults so far. Apart from this, 31 percent people have taken both the doses. It is clear that in the war against Corona, a large number of people have brought themselves under the protection circle. Not only this, there is also a steady increase in the speed of vaccination in the country. The country took 85 days to get the first 100 million vaccines, while the figure of 20 crores was achieved in the next 45 days only. After this, the next 10 crore vaccines were taken in just 29 days.
The pace of vaccination and the corona virus kept on increasing. The country had achieved the figure of 30 to 40 crores in 24 days and then the number of 50 crores in 20 days only. This figure was touched by the country on 6 August and after that in just 76 days i.e. in two and a half months, the country has crossed the 1 billion mark with the next 500 million vaccines. Vaccination was started in the country from 16 January. In the first round, it was decided to vaccinate health workers across the country. After this, frontline workers were started getting vaccinated from February 2. Taking this scope forward, people above 60 years of age and people above 45 years of age with serious illness were started getting vaccinated from March 1. Then from 1 April, the central government started vaccination for all people above 45 years of age. Not only this, giving further impetus to this campaign, the government had decided to vaccinate all people above the age of 18 years from May 1. It is a big achievement for the country to cross the 1 billion mark only after 6 months of that decision.
