India has announced plans to widen a coronavirus vaccination campaign to include more younger people.
The Minister of Health, HARSH VARDHAN, revealed this as the country’s new infections rose by the most in more than five months.
VARDHAN said everyone above the age of 45 would be eligible for vaccination from April 1st, adding that it was working to meet a demand by many states for the inclusion of all adults.
Meanwhile, the world’s biggest vaccine-making nation has reportedly held back large exports of the AstraZeneca shot to meet growing domestic demand.
