rajkotupdates.news:covid-vaccine-record-india-2-billion-doses-of-covid-vaccine-in-just-18-months – Covid vaccine record: India launched the world’s largest vaccination campaign against Covid last year.
A year after launching the world’s largest vaccination campaign against the coronavirus, India has crossed a major milestone of administering 2 billion vaccine doses. The country is trying to boost vaccination efforts amid global concerns over fresh Covid waves. Among Asian countries, Japan has recently seen a major increase in cases, while France tops the global dashboard.
Shortly after administering the 200 crore dose, PM Modi tweeted: “India makes history again (Covid vaccine record)! Congratulations to all Indians for crossing the milestone of 200 crore vaccine doses. Proud of those who donated to making India’s immunization campaign unparalleled in scale and speed. This has wired the global fight against Covid-19.”
“India has created a new record by completing the target of 200 crore vaccinations in just 18 months (Covid vaccine record). Hearty congratulations to all the countrymen for this achievement,” Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya said in a video address.
Even though India has crossed a major milestone (Covid vaccine record), booster dose coverage remains a concern. Only 8 percent of the country’s total population has so far received the third shot against Covid, the government said earlier this week. On Friday, a 75-day campaign for free booster shots was launched at government centers across the country to encourage people.
The campaign also marks 75 years of India’s independence, which the country completes next month.

India has a administered two billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine so far under the nationwide vaccination drive. “17th July 2022, a day to remember forever,” tweeted Minister of Health and Family Welfare Dr Mansukh Mandaviya.
India’s COVID-19 vaccination drive touched the 1 billion doses feat in October 2021, in just over nine months since the start of the drive. Now, India has reached another milestone of 2 billion doses.
“Witness the history in making! India under PM @NarendraModi Ji’s leadership is all set to achieve the 200-crore COVID-19 vaccination mark! Countdown starts,” tweeted Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on July 16.
In order to ensure protection against COVID-19, Mandaviya launched the “Covid Vaccination Amrit Mahotsav” on July 15 at the Covid Vaccination Camp in Nirman Bhawan.
In order to deliver free prophylactic doses at all Government Covid Vaccination Centers for people aged 18 and above for 75 days from July 15 to September 30, 2022, the Center has announced a special campaign called “COVID Vaccination Amrit Mahotsava.” All adults over the stage of 18 who have passed six months (or 26 weeks) since the administration of the second dose are eligible for the prophylactic dose.
Is it safe to have sex next you take the COVID vaccine? Here’s what specialists say rajkotupdates.news:covid-vaccine-record-india-2-billion-doses-of-covid-vaccine-in-just-18-months
There has been a lot of discussion on the dos and don’ts one must follow after getting their dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Social media has lately been abuzz with enquiries on whether one can have sex after receiving the COVID vaccine.
Although the Ministry of Health has not issued any formal rules about this, medical experts recommend that men and women use contraceptives after the second dose.
“SARS-CoV2 is a new virus and a vaccine has been developed to neutralize it. However, it is too primary to say whether there are any long-term side effects of the vaccine and whether they will affect a man and woman if they have sex . It is not always possible for a vaccinated person to abstain from sex,” said an intern at Columbia Asia Hospital in Ghaziabad. Medicine Dr. Deepak Verma told Indianexpress.com.
