What’s the Reason for the Slow Vaccination process in India
- India has administrated 6,130 doses per 1 lakh population as of April 5, lower than the world average of 8,900 doses.
- India’s vaccination pace is relatively slower than comparable economies and Vaccinate Every Indian is the current need.
- A parliamentary committee has noted that less than 1% of the country’s population has been vaccinated against Covid-19 from February as per the information shared with it by the Ministry of Home Affairs, of the entire population.
- It will take many years to vaccinate the whole country and the corona virus may mutate more at that time.
- A proper management strategy is the need of the country to control the Corona Pandemic.
Misleading Claim related to Vaccines Creating Problem for Vaccine Drive in India
- Even after Health Ministry, any other Leaders have cleared the doubt many times that vaccine is safe still some misleading claims are been speculated related to vaccines that are hesitating people in taking vaccines.
- Impotency rumors have been circulated about vaccines like Polio several decades ago.
- Claims like Covid Vaccine in India contain Pork.
- A false claim like Vaccine contains Microchip and it will control everyone’s mood.
The country’s Health Minister, Dr. Harshvardhan has also denied this claim

Reason of Corona Virus Mutation in India
- On 16 January, India began its vaccination campaign against Covid-19, giving initial doses to around 2,00,000 health workers, and reminded them to return on 13 February for their second shots.
- But when that date took place, less than 8,000 returned – 4% of the total.
- By the morning of 15 February, the ratio had improved, but just 24,561 health workers received the second shot out of 2,24,301 who wanted to receive it, or just over 10%.
- This is a problem – and not just for India. If people skip their second dose, or even if they delay the dose beyond the recommended timeframe, it makes corona virus more likely to rebalance themselves – in such a way as to mutate mutually. Like- TB
- Which may lend to the high resistance to vaccination we have.
- If that mutant, resistant form spreads, a year’s worth of vaccine research may be overcome by a new wave of disease “Which would be dangerous for the World”.

Vaccination for Everyone above18
- Center rejects demand for vaccination above 18 years because it will prioritize the vulnerable groups.
- A new study conducted by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and the National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) recommends vaccines be given to all people over the age of 18 from 15 April.
- Even if India opens up COVID-19 vaccination for everyone above 18 years of age, it will take another six to seven months to vaccinate the entire country at the rate of 2.5 million doses a day.
The need to cover more of the Indian population TCS and NITIE recommendation
- TCS and NITIE suggest that India should prioritize and intensify vaccination for the 130 districts that were identified as the ones ‘Red Zone’ during the first wave of the epidemic.
- The report said “Once vaccinations are open to all people over the age of 18, about 230 million people – in these 130 districts – require a vaccination at the rate of 2.5 million per day,”
- Beyond these 130 districts, it would take another six to seven months to vaccinate the remaining population of about 490 million people over the age of 18.
