Till date, the country accounted 98.55 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccines given to the public. On Monday, 83.30 lakh doses were accounted till 7.15 PM. With this speed of vaccination in such a short period, the country is set to reach the 100-crore vaccination mark in the next few days. Among these doses, the maximum contribution of vaccines has come from the serum Institute of India (SII), which is nearly 88 % of the total vaccine doses given so far. Apart from that, almost 6.7 crore vaccines have been exported by the Serum Institute of India to other countries.
Vaccination has been the most powerful tool to handle the pandemic so far. Till now, nearly 75 % of the population has got its first dose, whereas 30% of the population is now fully vaccinated. Along with that, more than 10.72 crore doses are still available with states and union territories. Serum Institute of India delivered more than it had committed and was a significant player in helping the government to run vaccination drives so effectively.
