On Friday, India achieved a new one-day record by reaching 1 crore jabs.

Covid Vaccination

India reached a new high of one crore anti-Covid vaccine doses on Friday at 10 p.m., exceeding the previous high of 92 lakh injections set on August 16 as immunisation accelerated due to increased supply.Almost 37% of India's 1.3 billion people have received at least one dose, and 10% have received both. In terms of the 94 crore adults aged 18 and up who are currently eligible for vaccinations, 51 percent have received at least one dose. One-fifth of those had received both doses.

Though the number of completely vaccinated people in India is low in comparison to the United States and the United Kingdom, the country is making progress in terms of injections per 100 people. According to ourworldindata.org, the graph has grown dramatically in recent weeks to 43/100 people.Despite the fact that India's large population makes immunisation difficult, it has supplied the most complete vaccinations after the United States, barring China. The United States has 172 million fully immunised citizens, while India has 136 million.

India is second only to China in terms of those who have gotten at least one dose, with two billion doses administered as of August 26.By December of this year, the government hopes to have vaccinated every adult in the country before moving on to children. Officials emphasised that meeting the objective will be contingent on the ability to scale up at a steady pace, as well as the ability to reach both the "willing" and "hard-to-reach" populations.The increased vaccination rate is primarily due to a greater supply of vaccines in August, as well as government measures to promote coverage, especially for the second dosage.

While nearly 15 crore pills were given out in August, the Centre's advance visibility on Friday morning revealed that over four crore unused doses were accessible with states, with 17.64 lakh doses in the pipeline.This is up from the 13.45 crore medicines administered in July and the 11.97 crore doses administered in June. "In August, we want to reach 17 crore inoculations. It could have been considerably higher, but due to the weekend and Janmashtami, the next few days are likely to be modest. In September, we plan to distribute 20-22 crore tablets, "a high-ranking official stated.Vaccination coverage improved dramatically over the current week of August 21-27, with over 4.58 crore doses administered, up 15% from the prior week.
