Union health minister Harsh Vardhan on Sunday informed that over 2.24 lakh people vaccinated against Covid-19 till now. More than 17,000 beneficiaries were vaccinated in six states – the second day of the vaccination drive.

    The six states where the vaccination drive was carried out on Sunday are Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Manipur and Tamil Nadu.

    The states and union territories have been advised to plan Covid-19 vaccination sessions four days a week to minimise disruption of routine health services.

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi had rolled out the world’s largest inoculation drive against Covid-19 on Saturday with two vaccines – Serum Institute’s Covishield and Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin – which were recently approved by India’s drug regulator.

    According to the government, the shots will be offered first to an estimated one crore healthcare workers and around two crore frontline workers, and then to persons above 50 years of age, followed by persons younger than 50 years of age with associated comorbidities.
