India begins nationwide rollout of two COVID-19 vaccines

India, New Delhi

Ruptly is live from New Delhi on Saturday, January 16, as India starts rolling out COVID-19 vaccines nationwide. The move comes after the Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) gave emergency use authorisation to two candidates on January 3.

According to government plans, the first beneficiaries to receive jabs of the Oxford-developed Covishield, manufactured by Pune-based Serum Institute of India, and Covaxin, developed by Hyderabad-based Bharat Biotech, will be health care workers, police officers, armed forces members, home guard and civil defence workers, municipal servants, some volunteers and senior citizens above 50 years of age.

On January 8, the Indian government conducted a mock drill of COVID-19 vaccinations, a dry run across some 736 districts in 33 states and union territories.
