For the first time on August 27, the daily vaccination administered in the country had crossed the one-crore mark. On September 17, India logged a record 2.5 crore COVID-19 vaccinations in a single day under the ‘mahaabhiyan, or great campaign’ to mark Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday.
This is the fifth time since the nationwide inoculation drive was rolled out on January 16 with healthcare workers getting inoculated in the first phase, that India crossed the milestone of over one crore vaccination on Monday. The COVID-19 vaccination exercise is the biggest weapon to fight the deadly virus, and continues to be regularly reviewed and monitored at the highest level, the Health Ministry had underlined.
