An infographic shared on the committee’s official Twitter account also showed 85.1 per cent, or 19,932,137 individuals, have received the first dose, bringing to a total of 35,150,474 doses of the vaccine having been dispensed under the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme until Wednesday (Sept 1).

According to JKJAV, 61 per cent of the country’s population had received at least the first dose of the vaccine, while 46.7 per cent having completed both doses.
