Launch of Covid Vaccine

Posted On: 05 FEB 2021 6:44PM by PIB Delhi

The COVID-19 vaccination has been rolled out in the country from 16th January 2021 in a phased manner starting with prioritised groups of Health Care Workers and Front Line Workers. The roll-out of COVID-19 vaccine is being done simultaneously across all States and UTs.

The Government has sufficient doses of COVID-19 vaccine available for the on-going phase of COVID-19 vaccination throughout the country.

The existing cold storage facilities under Universal Immunization Programme have been further strengthened and are being used for storing COVID-19 vaccine. The available storage space is sufficient to store COVID-19 vaccines already supplied to States/UTs.
