Earlier on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has written a letter to all vaccinators of the country and lauded their efforts in the battle against COVID-19 as India surpassed the 200-crore vaccination mark recently.

This comes just days after the country passed the 200 crore vaccination doses mark on July 17.

“India creates history again! Congrats to all Indians on crossing the special figure of 200 crore vaccine doses. Proud of those who contributed to making India’s vaccination drive unparalleled in scale and speed. This has strengthened the global fight against Covid-19,” PM Modi had tweeted.

The nationwide COVID-19 vaccination started on 16th January 2021. The new phase of universalization of COVID-19 vaccination commenced on June 21 2021.

The vaccination drive has been ramped up through the availability of more vaccines, and advanced visibility of vaccine availability to States and UTs for enabling better planning by them and streamlining the vaccine supply chain.
