India on Thursday achieved the major milestone of 100 crore vaccination-mark, nine months after the nationwide inoculation programme was started to protect the people against Covid-19.
The CoWin portal mentioned that a total of 100 crore vaccine doses has been administered so far to the eligible population under the vaccination drive in India.
India's vaccination drive against the Covid pandemic was launched on January 16, 2021.
As India has achieved this historical landmark, the health ministry has planned several events to mark the occasion. The Health Minister released a song and an audio visual film to celebrate the milestone of administering 100 crore Covid-19 vaccine doses. Mandaviya released the film and song at the Red Fort. In another event, PM Modi visited the centre-run Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in Delhi.
