Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: India starts one of the world’s largest vaccination campaigns” – below is their description.
Sanitation worker Manish Kumar became the first person in India to be vaccinated against COVID-19 on Saturday as Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched one of the world’s largest immunization campaigns to bring the pandemic under control.
First in line for the vaccine are some 30 million health and other frontline workers, such as those in sanitation and security, followed by about 270 million people older than 50 or deemed high-risk because of pre-existing medical conditions.
Kumar received his shot at Delhi’s premier All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), just one of 3,006 vaccination centres established around the country.
India, which has reported the highest number of coronavirus infections after the United States, plans to vaccinate around 300 million people with two doses in the first six to eight months of the year.
Some 10.5 million people in India have been infected with the coronavirus, including more than 151,000 who died, though the rate of infection has come down from its peak in mid-September.
