India has capacity to administer 1.25 crore doses a day: Dr N K Arora

Chairperson, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation in India (NTAGI), Dr. N. K. Arora said India has the capacity to administer 1.25 crore doses a day. He said the dosage achieved yesterday is a huge achievement.

Speaking to DD news, Dr Arora said the target is to vaccinate at least one crore people every day. He, however said, the country will easily be able to administer 1.25 crore doses of COVID-19 vaccine every day. Dr. Arora said that this target is especially achievable in the wake of good support from private sector and this was proven yesterday when revised guidelines came into force.

The NTAGI Chairperson emphasised on the significance of people’s participation and public awareness in order to avoid rumours and misconceptions against vaccination. The Chairperson assured that there won’t be any issue regarding availability of vaccine. On dosage interval of COVISHIELD vaccines, the Chairperson said that no need is felt at the moment to change the interval. He emphasised that people should get the maximum benefit from every dose of the vaccine.
