Over one crore 28 lakh vaccine doses administered under Teeka Utsav

India has been scaling multiple peaks in its effort to vaccinate vulnerable sections of its population against the COVID-19 virus. The clarion call given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi of observing a four-day special vaccination drive in the form of ‘Tika Utsav’ culminated yesterday with over 1 crore 28 lakh vaccine doses administered to eligible beneficiaries.

AIR respondent reports, Tika Utsav saw many Workplace Vaccination Centres (CVCs) operational across the private and public workplaces. In a span of four days, the nation also witnessed remarkable scaling up of number of functional COVID vaccination centres. With the mantra given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to achieve complete utilisation of resources, nearly 20 thousand additional vaccination centres on an average were made functional in addition to the existing 45 thousand centres.

The vaccination programme which earlier recorded lower turnouts on weekends witnessed heavy footfalls even on Sundays where on the first day of the special vaccination drive more than 27 lakh doses were administered.

With over 33 lakh doses of vaccine being administered yesterday, three states in the country namely Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan have till now given more than 1 crore doses to eligible beneficiaries.
