Covid-19: The Union Government is dedicated to stepping up and broadening the COVID-19 immunisation programme nationwide. On January 16, 2021, the countrywide COVID 19 immunisation campaign began. Beginning on June 21, 2021, a new phase of COVID-19 immunisation was made mandatory. The availability of additional vaccinations, early notification of vaccine availability to States and UTs for improved planning by them, and simplifying the vaccine supply chain have all increased the vaccination campaign.
The Government of India has been assisting the States and UTs by giving them free COVID vaccines as part of the national immunisation push. The Union Government will purchase and provide (free of charge) to States and UTs 75% of the vaccinations being manufactured by the country’s vaccine producers as part of the next phase of the COVID19 immunisation push.
