Today, India has has given around 85 lakh vaccination doses. This is the highest single day number in the world. Thus India has vaccinated around the population of Israel or twice the population of New Zealand in a single day.
This has been driven by the efficient model of centralised model of vaccination along with ground level efforts by state governments.
NDA ruled states performed outstandingly in ramping up vaccination numbers. NDA ruled states accounted for around 70% of all vaccinations done today.
MP CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan had strived to achieve a big target today, which they did by vaccinating around 15 lakh. Similarly Karnataka vaccinated more than 10 lakh people. UP, Gujarat, Haryana were other leaders who all vaccinated more than/around 5 lakh people.
A stark contrast was visible with the lacklustre performance of opposition ruled states. Punjab, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Delhi on the other hand were not able to cross even 1 lakh vaccinations. Punjab, Chattisgarh & Delhi each have been given indicated availability of around 8 lakh vaccines till the end of this month. Chattisgarh has been indicated availability of around 3.5 lakh vaccines till the end of this month. Maharashtra also vaccinated around 3.6 lakh people, which is below par given its population and despite the availability of more than 33 lakh vaccines till the end of this month.
