Number Surpasses Partially Vaccinated Eligible Population
“The number of the fully vaccinated individuals has surpassed the partially vaccinated eligible population for the first time in the country. This feat has been made possible due to Prime Minister’s vision of ‘Jan-Bhagidari’ and “Whole of Government Approach”, people’s faith and confidence in the Government, and the ongoing ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign which has seen tremendous response from various parts of the country”. This was stated by Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, Union Minister for Health & Family Welfare, here today.
In a significant achievement to the nationwide vaccination coverage for the country, for the first time the number of fully vaccinated individuals has surpassed those who have been administered only a single dose of vaccine.
The country has in total administered over 113.68 Cr (1,13,68,79,685) as per 7 am provisional reports today with the administration of 67,82,042 vaccine doses in the last 24 hours. This has been achieved through 1,16,73,459 sessions. Out of which, 75,57,24,081 doses were administered as first dose and 38,11,55,604 doses were administered as second dose.
Thus, the number of fully vaccinate individuals (38,11,55,604) exceeds those who have been administered a single dose (37,45,68,477).
The Union Health Minister congratulated the collective spirit of the country on this achievement. In a tweet, he appealed to all eligible citizens to get vaccinated. “We will win the battle against COVID-19 together,” he stated.
