Moderna notes that it will gather data until 12 months after each participant's second dose of the vaccine to continue to assess the vaccine's safety in the long term. But because both Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech's vaccines require two doses given several weeks apart, Limaye says it may be hard to fully vaccinate everyone who wants a vaccine. He said the government was doing everything to increase development, production and supply of "made in India" vaccines.

Using a broader definition for a case of Covid-19, the study showed 93 percent efficacy.

According to data available on Our World In Data and multiple sources, other leading countries in the COVID-19 vaccination drive include the United Kingdom, which has reached the 5.1 crore mark in 168 days, Brazil reached the 5.9 crore mark in 128 days, while Germany reached 4.5 crore mark in 149 days.

People are urged to register at the Get Vaccinated website in order to get their notifications to have their second vaccine doses delivered electronically.

"I anticipate everyone will have their second dose by the end of summer", she told a news conference. "There is no decision as of now", he said. "It ensures you have the maximum protection for the maximum amount of time".

Older residents (over 70) and those who have been identified as extremely medically vulnerable will be notified as early as today that they can register for their second dose, which could be administered in a matter of days.

She said those who received a first dose before April 15 and haven't registered can expect a letter in the mail inviting them to book a second-dose appointment, but noted that the process would likely be slower than it would be if they registered online.

Henry added that the second dose of COVID-19 is important for both the person who receives it as well as their local community.

She said the National Advisory Committee on Immunization has reviewed the evidence on using different vaccines and has updated the guidance, confirming that while it is preferable to have the same product, it's not always possible. Also antibodies decline by time and they also come up not just specific to vaccines but also based on individual predilections.

Thursday's move is set to speed up the arrival of Pfizer shots and those developed by Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, with which the government has held multiple discussions but met with little success. "This is the approach that we will be taking as much as possible", Henry said.
