The eligible population is calculated by estimating the number of people who had received the second dose at least six months ago

A fortnight ago, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare Bharati Pawar informed the Parliament that 40 million people in the country were unvaccinated for Covid-19. For the 18-plus age group, 90 per cent of the population was fully vaccinated, while among 15-17-year-olds, over two-thirds had received the second dose (chart 1).
