New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today expressed satisfaction over the progress of vaccination in the country. The Prime Minister was speaking during a meeting with officials to review the Kovid situation in the country and the vaccine campaign. He said he was satisfied with the current vaccination rate but it should be expanded with the help of NGOs.
The meeting comes amid concerns in the country about the spread of the Delta Plus variant and the third wave. Currently, only 50 people in the country have confirmed the Delta Plus variant of Kovid. Despite the rising tide of predictions about the third wave, it is worrying that not even half the people in the country have been vaccinated. Of the over 95 crore adults in India, only 5.6 per cent received two doses.
Officials briefed the Prime Minister in detail about the distribution of vaccines in the country. They also shared information about age-based vaccine distribution and the distribution of vaccines to health workers and leading fighters. The meeting also discussed the steps taken to increase vaccine supply and vaccine production in the coming months. In the last six days, 3.77 crore doses of vaccine have been distributed. It will cover the entire population of Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Canada, officials said.
The Prime Minister’s Office said that 50 per cent of people over the age of 45 in 128 districts of the country have been vaccinated. In 16 districts, 90 per cent of people over the age of 45 have been vaccinated.
