India reaches 200 crore Covid-19 jab milestone

New Delhi, 17/7: India on Sunday reached the milestone of administering 200 crore Covid-19 vaccine shots in the past one and half years after making a slow start in January 2021.


The world’s largest adult vaccination programme began on a low scale initially covering only healthcare workers and front line workers, but expanded slowly to include senior citizens and subsequently all adults over 18 years.


With schools opening after two years, the campaign was later extended to incorporate school going children above 12 years.
