Largest Vaccination drive

The present COVID-19 immunisation campaign is the largest in India's history for adult vaccination. To date, 315 million vaccine doses have been provided throughout the country, with around 4% of the population receiving both doses.

The huge vaccination campaign's first phase began on January 16, 2021, and was aimed mostly at frontline workers and adults aged 60 and up.

By March, the second wave of COVID-19 had arrived in India, causing growing death and infection rates and wreaking havoc on the country's healthcare system. In order to resolve the shortages, the Indian government temporarily halted the shipment of COVID-19 vaccinations to other countries.
