As per an initiative by the Indian government, a nation wide vaccination drive had to be started. But it looks like some more time will be needed to set everything at the right position. In the 3rd phase of vaccination (to begin from May 1), all those of 18 years or above age will be vaccinated against covid-19.
India’s vaccination drive happens to be the largest so far. It started from January 16, 2021. With the death toll in India keep rising, many countries like the US, Singapore, Japan, France and others have started supplying medicines and other equipment.
