The Union health ministry said Monday that it has provided 193.53 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses to states and union territories.
More than 13.81 crore unutilized COVID-19 vaccine doses are still available for administration, according to government data.
The Union Government is committed to expanding COVID-19 vaccination nationwide. COVID 19 vaccinations began nationwide on January 16, 2021.
COVID-19 vaccination universalization began on June 21, 2021. More vaccines, better visibility of vaccine availability to States and UTs for better planning, and streamlining the vaccine supply chain have boosted the vaccination drive.
As part of a nationwide vaccination drive, the Indian government gives States and UTs free COVID vaccines.
In the new phase of the COVID19 vaccination drive, the Union Government will buy and give States and UTs 75% of the vaccines produced in the country for free.
