The Case of the 800 Million Missing Vaccines

Description

800 million vaccine doses is almost half of what India needs to vaccinate its entire adult population by the end of 2021. So why, and how, did they disappear in a span of 3 weeks from the centre’s list of vaccines needed for the drive? And with a third wave looming, what will it take to protect the population against the continued wrath of COVID-19?

Stories originally reported by Maitri Porecha and Seema Singh.

With guest Gagandeep Kang, virologist and professor at CMC Vellore.
