Initial glitches drag down India's Covid vaccination pace

Mar 03, 2021 09:11 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Initial glitches continue to drag down the pace of Covid-19 vaccinations in India. People in several parts of the country reported long waiting times, and being turned away because doses had not arrived at centres even after getting an appointment, the Hindustan Times has reported.

On Tuesday, close to 600,000 doses were administered, taking the total number of shots given since January 16, when the drive began, to 15.5 million.

Close to five million registrations — which officials estimate could include 10 million people — took place in the 24 hours after the government opened vaccination on Monday.

Nearly 27,000 hospitals are currently providing Covid-19 vaccination across the country, including 12,500 hospitals in the private sector.
