Nearly 60% of the worlds vaccinations are produced in India: Finance Minister

New Delhi: Nirmala Sitharaman, the finance minister, stated on Wednesday that over 60% of all vaccines used worldwide are produced in India, which has over the years made a great contribution to the global vaccination effort.

Even amid the lockdown, India was making Covid-19 vaccinations and giving every resident a double dose.

Speaking at the launch of Additional Secretary, Expenditure Department, Sajjan Singh Yadav's book, "India's Vaccine Growth Story," Sitharaman claimed that it is in the nation's DNA to be able to contribute to global immunisation.

"Over the decades India has made a remarkable contribution. Nearly 60 per cent of all the vaccines which are used in the world are produced in India. India has a singular contribution to make to the world in terms of vaccination and that which is being produced and supplied to the entire world," Sitharaman said.

Today, the country is double dosing every citizen, she said, adding it is not easy to produce and execute Covid vaccination at that scale.

India crossed the target of 200 crore Covid vaccinations in a time-bound manner. So far, 208.57 crore doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered under the nationwide inoculation drive.
