Prime News, National, Health, Disease, Vaccine, New Delhi, October 21:- After India on Thursday (October 21) achieved a major milestone of 100 crore vaccination, Congress Member of Parliament Shashi Tharoor said that the credit should be given to the government and this is a matter of pride for the entire country.
“This is a matter of pride for all Indians. Let’s give the Government credit. After severe mismanagement of the second #Covid wave & botching the vaccination orders that might have prevented it, Govt has now partly redeemed itself. It remains accountable for its earlier failures,” Tharoor said in a tweet.
The CoWin portal on Thursday 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. The healthcare workers were the first ones to get doses. Later, the frontline workers were also included in the drive from February 2. The state and central police personnel, Armed Forces, Home Guards, Civil Defence and others were included in the vaccination drive. (MR, Inputs: Agencies)
