Although it’s not very easy to vaccinate such a large amount of population which is more than a hundred crores. The Indian government has taken many steps related to vaccination and developed the Cowin online registration portal for vaccines.

Currently, due to the Limited quantity of vaccine doses, the government decided to conduct an 18-plus people vaccine drive through online registration. The government has started to vaccinate 18 plus people all over India from 1st May 2021. Initially, the 18 plus registration was started for only 6 States due to the unavailability of vaccine doses. Now anyone can register on the online Cowin vaccine portal to get a vaccine dose.

As of January 2022 Indian government has vaccinated more than 1 billion people and also started the vaccination of kids in the 15-17 yrs age group.
