COVID-19 Vaccination- Myths vs. Facts

The Union Government committed to supporting the States in expanding their COVID19 Vaccination coverage and pace of vaccination

Uttar Pradesh’s ‘cluster approach’ for vaccination and creating special ‘pink booths’ for women have added to its high vaccination coverage

Vaccination coverage consistently rising in Bihar

There have been some media reports alleging slow pace of COVID-19 vaccination drive in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, further stating that it will take three years for both the states to fully vaccinate its population.

It is clarified that the news report is misleading as it takes in to account the average daily vaccination rate from the beginning of the COVID vaccination drive in order to show a low rate of vaccination and then further uses this number to claim that the states will take many years to complete the vaccination drive for its citizens.

Furthermore, using an average when the availability of vaccines was extremely low across the world (including India) and then extrapolating the low rate by comparing it with present data when the vaccine supply is expected to be very high, may also lead to vaccine hesitancy which is a global issue during vaccination.

In contrast to this, the vaccine availability and vaccination rate have been consistently improving across the country. It must also be kept in mind that Uttar Pradesh is India’s largest state in terms of population. As per the 2011 census, the state has over 19.95 crore population. UP’s population is higher than many counties including Brazil, Russia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, to name a few.
