At current rate, India's COVID-19 vaccination to take 2 years & 9 months

India has administered the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine to 12.55 crore until April 30, 2021. That's just 9.3% of the 135.5 crore population. Both doses have been given to barely 2% of Indians. At this rate, vaccinating 70% of all Indians-the herd immunity threshold-will take 2 years & 9 months.
