India on Thursday hit the century in administering 100 crore vaccine doses against COVID-19. The total vaccine doses administered in India have now crossed 100 crores, on October 21.

As the country crosses a major milestone of administering 100-crore vaccines, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu today urged all those who are yet to be inoculated against the coronavirus.

A chasm is quite visible when it comes to what the situation was during the second Covid-19 wave and the present day.

The whole world is also congratulating India for reaching the 100-crore-vaccination milestone.

Also, CM Yogi Adityanath met the health workers and beneficiaries at the COVID19 vaccination centre set up at Saraswati Shishu Mandir on this occasion.

One must note here that India accounts for about 15 per cent of the total vaccine doses administered worldwide as of today October 21, 2021.

Moreover, It took us 278 days to administer a total of 1 billion vaccine doses. Given the size of the population and geography, it remains a remarkable achievement.

Also, about 30 per cent of India’s adult population has been fully vaccinated; and 44 per cent of those above 18 years have received their first dose.

The US

As per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, only 66.5 per cent of Americans aged 12 and older are completely inoculated against COVID-19.

Moreover, Covid-19 infection rates are progressively declining throughout the United States. This comes after the enormous decreases in densely populated states like Florida, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

However, an abrupt increase in the Northern states is generating some panic among the masses there.

Pakistan

In Pakistan, vaccine hesitancy is a big problem. Anti-vaxxers in Pakistan are using forged vaccination certificates to avoid government regulations against unvaccinated people.

Just 100,399,945 have got the vaccines so far.

Palau

Pacific nation of Palau has the world’s highest percentage of people vaccinated against COVID-19. Fully 99 per cent of Palau’s population over 12 has had both shots of vaccine for the new coronavirus.
