"Announcements will be made at seaports, railway stations, bus stations, metro stations and airports at the time India completes 100 crore vaccinations," said Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya

During an interaction at the event, the Union Health Minister said that nearly 73 per cent adult population has received the single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and around 30 per cent have been administered double doses.

The Coffee table book Sentinels of the soil launched by the Union Health Minister has 13 stories of Corona Warriors from 8 different states /UTs of the country. This book has 8 case studies of those healthcare and front line workers who helped India combat the Covid crisis, including ambulance drivers, doctors, Asha workers, health volunteers etc.
