Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 2.15 billion vaccine doses have been administered as of May 16th, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 1.03 billion people who have received at least one vaccination (74.3 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 228.76 million people (16.6 percent).
952.11 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in India (= 69.0 percent).
This means that India is still among the fairly good midfield countries in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 88 countries.

Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in India is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 0.5 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about one million physicians in India, there are about 0.78 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 22 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
