India’s COVID Vaccine Status: An Overview by BCG

December 3, 2021

India had, by the end of May, completely vaccinated only 3.2% of its total population. India started its vaccination program in January, from 0.2 million doses a day, and peaked in April at 4.3 million doses a day. Currently, the daily figure is close to 1.8 million doses, even as the program opened for everyone above the age of 18, significantly rising demand.

The distribution of vaccinations among states is not uniform. Of the bigger states, Gujarat, Delhi, and Kerala are performing relatively better, while Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Maharashtra are lagging.


Community Based Care & Support for COVID-19

Swasti works with the most poor and marginalized communities in India partnering them to make health and well-being real. To break the chain of COVID-19 transmission, it is imperative to provide the most marginalized with practical solutions to isolate and receive care through, Community Care Centers, Home quarantine kits and HelloSwasti

It is estimated that India will have to administer at least 10 million doses daily to be able to vaccinate a critical mass (~70%) of its population by November. Therefore, the need right now is to increase India’s vaccination efforts multiple times over.
