United with India: Supporting India's COVID-19 vaccination drive
17 February 2022
On January 30, 2022, India announced that 75 percent of its adult population had received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, with some 1.7 billion doses of vaccines administered and over 720 million people fully vaccinated in just over a year.
This collection of photos highlights how the UN in India, a proud partner of the Government of India, mobilized its resources and capabilities to support India's vaccination drive.
Winning over COVID - CoWIN
Cold Chain Management
Upgrading cold chain systems was critical in strengthening India's capacity to deliver COVID-19 vaccines.
Supporting Frontline Workers
India’s frontline health workers are the unsung heroes in the battle against COVID-19. Millions of volunteers have worked tirelessly across the country to increase awareness, amplify messages on COVID-appropriate behaviours and treatments, and boost vaccine confidence.
Leaving No one Behind
Ending the pandemic and saving lives depends on everyone everywhere receiving vaccines, including the most marginalized groups, refugees, and remote populations. India has included refugees and asylum-seekers in its national vaccination programme.
