However, at a time when most of the world is struggling to secure enough vaccines to administer their populations, India is facing the opposite problem: Plenty of shots, but a shortage of people willing to take them.
India had targeted to vaccinate at least 300 million people by the end of July.
At present two vaccines are being administered to the people in India: AstraZeneca vaccine, manufactured by Serum Institute of India and Covaxin developed by Bharat Biotech International Ltd.
Meanwhile, the Government has been trying to dispel the rumours surrounding the two COVID-19 vaccines in India.
