India mammoth new vaccination policy creates a record

    India will begin universal vaccination against Covid-19 on Monday, following the Centre’s decision to give free vaccines to the states for the 18-45 years category from June 21, a move that is expected to help in scaling up daily vaccination numbers.

    The aim of the government is to vaccinate all adults in the country against Covid-19 by the end of this year.
