Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Saturday launch the nationwide Covid vaccination drive, one of the world’s largest, a top official said today. Vaccine quota will be allocated to states according to the coronavirus data, added VK Paul, member of plan body NITI Aayog.
“PM Modi will be beginning the vaccination program. The details are being worked out,” Mr Paul told NDTV.
The vaccination drive will begin with 3,000 sites on Saturday. Each centre will inoculate people in a single session per day to begin with.
“As the program progresses, it will be ramped up to 5,000 sites and more,” Mr Paul said.
