Over 8.27 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in India until 9 p.m. on Monday, the highest ever in a single day. On Sunday, 1.44 million doses were administered in Andhra Pradesh alone. After registering a slow rate in May, daily vaccinations in the country have gradually increased in June. However, by December 31, only 943 million doses can be administered at the current rate, which is half of what is required to fully vaccinate all adults.
