NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that India's achievement of 100 crore COVID-19 vaccinations belongs to every individual in the country.
While addressing the nation, Modi congratulated every citizen of the country for achieving this feat.


"On 21st October, India accomplished the target of 1 billion Covid-19 vaccinations. This achievement belongs to every individual in the country. I congratulate every citizen for this feat," said the Prime Minister.


He further said that 100 crore vaccinations are not just a number but the beginning of a new chapter in the history of the country.


"When the biggest pandemic of 100 years came, questions started arising on India. Will India be able to fight this global pandemic? From where will India get the money to buy so many vaccines from other countries? When will India get the vaccine? Will the people of India get the vaccine or not? Will India be able to vaccinate enough people to stop the pandemic from spreading? There were various questions, but today this 100 crore vaccine dose is answering every question," he stated.


He said that today many people are comparing India's vaccination programme with other countries of the world. "The speed with which India crossed the 100 crore mark is also being appreciated," he added.


The Prime Minister further said the Central government ensured that VIP culture does not overshadow India's vaccination program and everyone was treated equally.


On October 21, India has achieved the difficult but extraordinary target of 1 billion, 100 crore vaccine doses.


Meanwhile, more than 100.59 crore vaccine doses have been administered so far to eligible beneficiaries, as per the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
