The number of fully vaccinated individuals has surpassed the partially vaccinated eligible population for the first time in the country. The number of fully vaccinated individuals is over 38 crore 11 lakh. This exceeds those who have been administered a single dose which is over 37 crore 45 lakh. Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said that this feat has been made possible due to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’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. Health Minister also congratulated the collective spirit of the country on this achievement. He appealed to all eligible citizens to get vaccinated.
The Union Health Minister also assured that there was no shortage of vaccine doses in the country. He urged people to come forward for second dose and motivate those in their family and community to take both doses.
