Now the full responsibility of the vaccine lies with the center

Vaccine supply will increase soon

Vaccine manufacturers were helped in clinical trials. Necessary funds were provided for research and development. The government at every level walked shoulder to shoulder with them. Under the self-reliant package, thousands of crores were made available through Mission Kovid Suraksha.

Two indigenous vaccines made in a year
Prime Minister Modi said that within 5-7 years we have increased the vaccination coverage from 60% to 90%. We have increased both the speed and scope of vaccination. To protect children from many deadly diseases, many new vaccines were made part of the campaign. We were worried about the children of our country, we were worried about the poor, we were worried about the children of the poor, who never got vaccinated. We were on the right track that the corona virus surrounded us. Not only the country, but the old fears started coming in front of the world as to how India would be able to save such a large population. When the intention is clear and the policy is clear and there is continuous hard work, then the results also come. Bypassing every apprehension, India launched not one but two Made in India vaccines within a year.

work in mission mode for vaccination
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that in 2014, when the countrymen gave us the opportunity to serve, the coverage of vaccination in India was only around 60%. In our view this was a matter of concern. At the rate at which India’s immunization program was going, it would have taken 40 years for the country to achieve 100% vaccination coverage. We have launched Mission Indradhanush to solve this problem. We decided that through this mission, vaccination will be done on a war footing and whoever needs vaccination in the country. Will try to give him the vaccine. We worked in mission mode.

PM Modi said – Vaccine is the only protective shield
PM Modi said that the vaccine is like a protective shield in the fight. There are few vaccine makers all over the world. If we did not have a vaccine made in India right now, what would have happened in a huge country like India. If we look at the history of the last 50-60 years, it will be known that it used to take decades for India to get the vaccine from abroad. Vaccine work used to be completed, even then the work of vaccination could not start in our country. The countrymen had waited for decades for the vaccine for polio, small pox, hepatitis B.

PM Modi said this in speech
What could have been available was brought from every corner of the world. The production of essential medicines was increased manifold. Wherever medicines are available abroad, no stone was left unturned to bring them from there. The most effective weapon in the fight against an invisible and transforming enemy like Corona is the Kovid Protocol. Masks, distance of two yards and other precautions are to be followed.

mention of lack of oxygen
PM Modi said that the demand for oxygen increased unimaginably in the months of April and May. Never in India has the need of so much oxygen been felt in such quantity. To meet this need, work was done on a war footing. All the machinery of government engaged. Oxygen Rail, Air Force, Navy were installed. A 10-fold increase in the production of liquid oxygen was achieved in a very short time.
