Modalities of Support for Access to Covid-19 Vaccines in India - A Report 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 raising 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 behind. 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.
