COVID-19 Vaccine Tracker: About 3.93 billion individuals around the world have gotten a Covid-19 vaccine dose. This is equal to around 51.2% of the world’s population. The map displays the stark gap between the vaccination programs in various countries. A vaccinated individual refers to a person that has received just a single dose of the COVID 19 vaccine, & a completely vaccinated individual has gotten all the needed vaccine doses. For Pfizer-BioNTech-vaccine, a person that’s “vaccinated fully” has gotten two doses.
Tracking Covid-19 Vaccinations in India
India managed above 30.9 lakh vaccine doses of COVID-19 in the last 24-hours, taking vaccination count to above 107.7 crores. This is according to the Union Health Ministry post on November 5.
On the 293rd day of the vaccination drive nationwide, above 2.01 lakh individuals get their first shot & 3.63 lakh got their second dose.
This vaccination drive speeded over the last few weeks. The country took 85-days to provide the first 10-crore doses, took 45 days to give the next 10 crores, and in another 29-days, India offered a 30-crore mark. In the next 24 days, the count was 40 crore & crossed the 50-crore spot 20 days later on August 6. By 13 September, 75 crores of COVID 19 vaccine doses were offered. The largest jump, however, arrived on September 17, where above 2.1 crores of vaccine were offered in a single day.
On 21 October, India made history with increasing doses of COVID-19 vaccine given in a country that surpassed the 100-crore milestone.
The Indian government is taking every important step for ensuring that we’re prepared properly to encounter issues & threats posed by developing the COVID-19 pandemic. The significant thing of stopping the spread of a Virus is empowering the people with information from Family Welfare and the Ministry of Health.
Vaccine doses are relatively scarce around the world, with a demand still predicted to outstrip supply via the completion of 2021. However, concerns about decreasing immunity have provoked many countries, among them being United States & Israel. This led them to start administering extra doses, which leads to a surge in vaccination campaigns.
Extra doses that include booster doses are offered to completely vaccinated people when protection from original shots started declining. Also, extra shots were offered to people, like the immune-compromised, that didn’t have a sturdy immune response from the initial doses. Above 88.1 million extra doses are administered worldwide, with more countries anticipated to begin administering them early.
Less wealthy countries are relying on a vaccine-sharing arrangement known as Covax that is originally intended to offer 2 billion doses before the end of this year. However, it has recurrently cut its predictions because of issues with production, vaccine hoarding by wealthy nations, and export bans. In the latest projection, it’s expected to consist of a total number of 1.4 billion doses that are available by 2021.
About 75% of shots that have gone to arms universal have been administered in high &-middle-income countries. Just 0.6 percent of the doses are administered to low-income countries.
More of the vaccines presently require two doses for the patient to be completely vaccinated. In February, the Food & Drug Administration approved a one-shot vaccine through pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson for emergency usage in the US.
The Indian government has reviewed the gap that’s there between two doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covishield, that’s manufactured by Serum Institute, to about 12 to 16 weeks. However, the interval for the second dose of Bharat-Biotech’s Covaxin stays unchanged for about four weeks.
Narendra Modi Indian Prime Minister launches the drive for nationwide vaccination on January 16, with the healthcare professionals being at the forefront of India’s battle against COVID-19 getting the first jabs. The following phase began on 1 March for individuals over 60-years & those aged 45 & above and who have stated comorbid situations.
