56

New Delhi: India will begin inoculating children in the 12-14 age group against Covid-19 in March as the 15-18 population is likely to get fully vaccinated by then, Dr NK Arora, chairman of the Covid-19 working group of NTAGI, said on Monday.

While as many as 3.31 crore children in the age bracket of 15-17 years have received their first dose of Covid-19 vaccination, the vaccination programme for the 12-14 years age group is all set to begin from March this year.

The Covid-19 surge continues to sweep across India, driven by the Omicron variant. India reported 2,58,089 new Covid-19 cases on Monday, over a 40 per cent increase in infections from a week ago.
