Fully Vaccinated individuals surpass partially vaccinated for the first time: MandaviyaNew Delhi : Urging people to come forward for the second dose, Union Health Minister, Manshukh Mandaviya assured that there is no shortage of vaccine doses in the country.

Informing that the number of the fully vaccinated individuals has surpassed the partially vaccinated eligible population for the first time in the country, Mandaviya noted that this feat has been made possible by people’s faith and confidence in the government, and the ongoing ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ campaign which has seen tremendous response from various parts of the country.

According to the Union Health Ministry, the country has in total administered over 113.68 crore (1,13,68,79,685), with the administration of 67,82,042 vaccine doses in the last 24 hours. This has been achieved through 1,16,73,459 sessions. Out of which, 75,57,24,081 doses were administered as the first dose and 38,11,55,604 doses were administered as the second dose. Thus, the number of fully vaccinated individuals (38,11,55,604) exceeds those who have been administered a single dose (37,45,68,477).

Assuring that there was no shortage of vaccine doses in the country, Mandviya urged people to come forward for a second dose, and motivate those in their family and community to take both the doses.

He added that the month-long ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ vaccination campaign aims to ensure that all the adult population is covered with the first dose of COVID vaccine, while those who are due for the second doses are motivated to take the second dose.

“Healthcare workers are conducting door-to-door vaccinations of eligible people across India with a special focus on districts where less than 50 percent of the eligible population has been vaccinated,” he added.
