New Delhi, Jnn. India has created a new history by crossing 100 crore doses in corona vaccination. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has thanked the doctors, nurses and other personnel of the country for this and attributed this success to the science and enterprise of the country as well as the collective spirit of 130 crore people. To be a participant in the historic moment of the hundred croreth dose, the Prime Minister himself visited the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) Hospital and took stock of the vaccination. On this achievement of India, there was an influx of congratulations from the country and abroad throughout the day.
This achievement of India has been historic in many ways. It has been achieved entirely from indigenously made vaccines. At the same time, India has become the first country in the world to achieve this success at a much smoother and faster pace than the more resourceful developed countries. 15 percent of the total 700 million doses of corona in the world are in India alone.
The five states with the highest dosage
1. Uttar Pradesh
5. Madhya Pradesh
Achievement achieved with the help of other countries
Along with the vaccination of its citizens, India has given about 55 million doses to other countries. The biggest thing is that out of 100 crores, more than 97 crore doses were given to the people free of cost and only three per cent are administered through the private sector. In this also the private sector was not allowed to recover profits.
journey has not been easy
The journey up to 100 crore doses in corona vaccination has not been easy. The road to availability of infrastructure and raw materials etc. for vaccines was not only difficult, the political disputes that arose again and again added to the difficulty. The achievement achieved in 279 days started with the vaccination of health care workers only on 16 January.
When did vaccination start for whom?
– January 16 – for health workers
– February 2 – For front line workers
– March 1 – for over 60 years of age
– April 1 – for over 45 years of age
– May 1 – For all adults
Gradually its scope expanded to include frontline workers, elderly people above 60 years of age, 45 to 60 years of age and finally from May 1, it was opened to all adults above 18 years of age. .
Important steps of vaccination
10 cr – 85 days
20 cr – 130 days
30 cr – 159 days
40 cr – 183 days
50 cr – 203 days
100 cr – 279 days
The second wave taught a lot
At the beginning of this campaign, which started in the last phase of the first wave of Corona, India gave them about 50 million doses under the concern of neighbors and friendly countries and vaccine friendship. But it became a big political issue during the second wave of infections in April-May and the government first completely banned its export to protect the citizens of the country.
Highlights of the vaccination campaign
- Campaign started on 16 January
- Open to all adults from May 1
- More than 97 crore doses got free
- 5.5 crore doses were also given to other countries
- Success achieved with indigenous vaccines
- 103.5 crore doses made available to the states
- States still have 10.85 crore doses available
All adults to be vaccinated by December 31
In view of the country’s large population and limited production of vaccines, the success of India’s vaccination campaign continued to raise fingers from home and abroad. Amid all-out pressure, the government also cleared the import of foreign vaccines and announced relaxation in the conditions for bridge trials required for them.
Do not kneel before foreign companies
Along with this, the government has made it clear that it will not bow to conditions like compensation to foreign companies for the supply of vaccines. Finally, in June, the government made it clear that it was ready to vaccinate all adults in the country by December 31, and for this it also laid out a roadmap for the availability of vaccines.
took command over the chaos
A fully centralized vaccination campaign also became an issue in the month of April and there was a demand for the participation of states and the private sector in this. Many states have also started ordering vaccines from foreign companies so that they can conduct vaccination campaigns independently.
States to administer at least one dose to all eligible people
– Andaman and Nicobar Islands
– Himachal Pradesh
– Jammu and Kashmir
– Dadra Nagar Haveli
The Center also imposed the dose of the states’ share
In view of this, the government has reserved 25-25 percent of the vaccines for the states and the private sector from the month of May. But within a month, the vaccination campaign under the states started falling into disarray and from June 21, the Center decided to introduce their own vaccines as well.
88 crore doses were taken only by Covishield
This vaccination achievement has been achieved by only two vaccines manufactured in India, Covishield and Covaccine. Of these, about 88 crore doses are of Kovishield and 12 crore of Covaccine. Sputnik-V could not be a part of the vaccination campaign due to non-availability of the second dose.
PM Modi said – this achievement of every citizen
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the country now has a strong protective shield of 100 crore doses of vaccines to fight the biggest epidemic of 100 years. This achievement belongs to India and every citizen of India.
The world got acquainted with India’s potential
