Centre to increase pace of Covid-19 vaccination in July-August: Home Minister



Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Monday said the central government has decided to increase the rate of providing vaccination against Covid-19 in July and August.

Talking to reporters after visiting a vaccination centre here, Shah said with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to provide free vaccination against Covid-19 to people aged 18 and above, “we will very early achieve the goal of inoculating almost everyone”.

“The central government has decided to increase the rate of vaccination in July and August,” he added.

Shah said from Monday morning, an important journey has began in the fight against Covid-19 under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The PM had taken an important decision that the Centre will provide free of cost vaccination to those 18 and above age group, he said.

In a country having such huge population, providing free vaccination is a big decision, he also mentioned.

On the International Yoga Day on Monday, the drive of free vaccine for all is being launched across the nation, Shah told, adding that India was already on top in the innoculation of vaccine programme.
