Abstract

India has accomplished an astonishing rate of Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) vaccination. Clever application of the prevailing immunisation infrastructure and logistics has facilitated in augmenting the reach of the vaccination program. Regardless, India is beholding an austere wave of the pandemic with a precipitous rise in number of cases. India ranks second in global covid tally with more than 31 million COVID-19 cases, ensuing a massive pressure on its existing healthcare infrastructure and medical workforce (1).
