MUMBAI: India’s government urged states and union territories on Saturday to accelerate COVID-19 vaccinations after a review found “substantial” room for speeding up the program.
India started what it says in the world’s biggest vaccination program on Jan. 16, aiming to reach 300 million people by July-August.
Twelve states and union territories have vaccinated 60% of their health care workers so far but many need to improve their performance, the government said after a review by the federal health secretary.
