State of play
The chart shows the average daily doses administered between May 18 and July 17 and June 18 and July 17 in all the States. An increase in the average daily doses is indicated by green and a decrease is shown by red.
■ The seven-day rolling average of daily doses administered fell drastically after peaking at 6.4 million/day on June 26 to 3.4 million on July 12. Since then, it has increased again to 4.1 million on July 17.
■ Between June 18 and July 17, the daily administration rate increased in almost all the States and UTs compared to the previous month.
■ If the vaccination rate continues at the same pace in the remaining days of the year, 1,166.37 million doses can be administered, about 720 million doses fewer than what is needed to fully vaccinate all adults by the end of 2021.
