As stated by the Ministry of Health and Child Care, only 8,513 people got their first dose of vaccines, a cry short of the target set by the government.

Meanwhile, to date, the country has received 6,875 million doses of Sinopharm, Sinovac, Sputnik V and Covaxin vaccines.

Apparently, the government is targeting to vaccinate at least 10 million against the estimated population of 15 million.
