Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch the nationwide Covid vaccination drive on Saturday, which will begin with 3,000 sites. Each centre will inoculate 100 people a day to begin with. The report added that as the program progresses, it will be ramped up to 5,000 sites and more. The government aims to vaccinate 300 million high-risk people over the next few months.
