In a tweet, Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said, now India has five Emergency Use Authorization vaccines. He added that this will further boost the country’s collective fight against COVID-19.
The nation of 1.3 billion people has administered 500 million vaccine doses so far, but barely eight percent of the population has had two shots.
Johnson and Johnson's vaccine is the fifth to be approved after Oxford-AstraZeneca's Covishield, the home developed Covaxin, Russia's Sputnik V, and the US-made Moderna jab.
