  • The Central Government said that the Serum Institute's Covishield was supplied to all states and Union Territories while Covaxin developed by Bharat Biotech was used by 12 states
  • The shortfall is on account of Covid-19 vaccination being voluntary

India on Saturday kicked off the massive inoculation exercise against the novel coronavirus with the Union Health Ministry saying that 1,91,181 healthcare and frontline workers received the jab, as against a target of vaccinating three lakh people by the Centre.

The shortfall is on account of Covid-19 vaccination being voluntary.

The Central Government said that the Serum Institute's Covishield was supplied to all states and Union Territories while Covaxin developed by Bharat Biotech was used by 12 states.

Both locally-manufactured Covishield and Covaxin were given to doctors, nurses, other health staff directly linked to fighting the pandemic. The Centre decided which Covid-19 vaccine went where; people cannot choose which of the two vaccines they want.

While initiating the vaccination drive on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed it as a major achievement.

The PM also said that people shouldn't fall for propaganda over coronavirus vaccines, amid controversy over Covaxin, which has been cleared for emergency use by the Indian drug regulator, while still in the clinical trial.

"The DGCI (Drugs Controller General of India) gave approval after they were satisfied with the data of the two vaccines. So stay away from rumours," PM Modi stated.
