India began vaccination of children aged 15-18 on January 3, 2021, a crucial milestone in expanding immunity beyond adults.

According to official estimates, there are an estimated ten crore children in the 15-18 age group eligible for the vaccination, out of which over two crores have already received one dose in less than a week of launching the drive.

The Union Health Ministry has announced that only Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin will be the one that will be administered to eligible children in two doses 28 days apart.
