Vaccine utilization rates lower in states witnessing second wave
SummaryGovernment data shows 30-35% utilisation rates of the vaccines available with states, suggesting administrative issues in giving the vaccine and hesitancy among the eligible public to take it.
India gave 3 million doses of covid vaccines on 15 March, an increase of about 50% over the previous highest single-day figure recorded on 12 March. Even as vaccination numbers rise steadily, government data shows there’s enough supply of the vaccine to impart significantly more doses on a daily basis. Lower utilisation rates suggest administrative and logistical issues in giving the vaccine and hesitancy among the eligible public to take it.
