Health Minister Harsh Vardhan has said that India will be in a position to vaccinate its entire adult population by the end of this year.

He said health facilities are being upgraded upon the speculation that the virus might mutate in future and endanger children.

During a COVID review meeting, Dr Hardh Vardhan said, between August and December this year, India will procure 216 crore vaccine doses, while by July this year, 51 crore doses will be procured.

Dr Harsh Vardhan also cautioned against the emerging trend in the country. He highlighted that now the smaller states are showing an upward trend and there is a dire need to be extremely cautious.
