On the day of International Yoga Day, the prime minister of India, Mr. Narendra Modi, opened up free vaccination for all adults to boost its immunization campaign. This is an excellent move by the government as the vaccination drive of India has slowed down drastically in recent months because of hesitancy and a shortage of jabs. The healthcare system in India had taken a hit and was overwhelmed as the cases in April and May had surged viciously. As the case number has failed, the authorities have relaxed restrictions, but this has sparked the fear of another wave.
On May 1st, the government of India had expanded the vaccine rollout and included all the adults aged 45 and below. Sadly, after this, he states that private hospitals had to procure and buy the shots themselves for the younger age groups as the expanded rollout created shortage and confusion.
The government of India aims to vaccinate 1.1 billion adults by the end of the year; so far, around 275 million shots have been administered by the government, i.e., four percent of the entire population is fully vaccinated.
