Dr NK Arora, head of the Group of Experts on Vaccine, discussed many points

New Delhi:

It took India about 9 months to achieve the record of administering the corona vaccine to 100 crore people. But it will take only one third i.e. three to four months to apply the next 100 crore doses (Billion Dose Target). These things were said by Dr NK Arora, head of the group of experts on vaccine. Talking to NewsBust, Dr. Arora said that by the end of this year, we have to reach the vaccine to 100 percent of the country’s population. For this, it is necessary that we should be able to give at least one dose to each person by the end of the year and can also apply another dose within the next 4 to 6 weeks.

He told that as I said in June-July that you will give 50 crore doses, which were almost in April or May. We completed 50 crore doses on 7th August. In October, we had expected 100 crores as we expected to supply so many doses. Now in the coming three months, we have arrangements for about 80 to 90 crore doses. Apart from this, by the month of January of the coming year, we will have about one hundred crore doses. With which we will be able to apply about 100 crore doses in the next three to four months.

It is expected that by the end of the year, everyone in the country will have had at least one dose, while only a few people will be left who will have to take another dose.
