India Crosses 100Cr COVID-19 Vaccination Milestone

India on Thursday crossed 100 crore COVID-19 vaccination milestone even as daily cases spiked to 18,454.

Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya appealed to all those who are eligible to get inoculated without delay and contribute to the historic vaccination journey of India.

A series of events have been lined up to mark the milestone of the COVID-19 vaccination exercise. The 100 crore vaccination milestone has been achieved in 9 months.

Health minister Mandaviya will also launch a song by singer Kailash Kher and an audio-visual film at the Red Fort.

Congratulating India on achieving the milestone, Dr Poonam Khetrapal Singh, regional director of WHO South-East Asia, said, "This extraordinary feat in a short span was not possible without strong political leadership, intersectoral convergence, dedicated efforts of the entire health and frontline workforce and the people themselves."
