India coronavirus: Can all adults get vaccinated in 2021?



India's government is สมัครslotxo promising to vaccinate the whole of the adult population by the end of 2021, although its biggest vaccine maker has been struggling to meet demand.


The government aims to ramp up vaccine production, with a pledge to produce at least two billion doses between August and December this year.


What vaccines does India already have?
Three are currently two locally-made vaccines for the coronavirus: Covishield and Covaxin.


The Serum Institute of India (SII) makes Covishield (under licence from AstraZeneca), whilst the second largest producer, Bharat Biotech, makes the locally-developed Covaxin.


The government had said in May that earlier this year, it had ordered a total of 356 million doses of the two vaccines to be available for use up until July, but not all of these doses had been delivered.


How much more vaccine could India make?
The government's target is for two billion doses to be made between August and the end of 2021 to fully vaccinate the entire adult population.


Based on 2011 census data for India, some 900 to 950 million people are 18 years and over, and therefore eligible for vaccines.


So two billion doses would largely cover this, assuming this population estimate is correct.


But of the eight vaccines currently under production in India so far, only three have been approved for use - another two are in the early stages of clinical trials, and a further three are in late-stage trials.
