The rate of daily COVID-19 vaccinations in India decreased in the first 10 days of July compared to the last 10 days of June when the new vaccination policy was introduced. However, the rate in July was still higher than the daily inoculation rate recorded before the new policy came into force. Between July 1 and 10, 4.03 million doses were administered on average daily in the country, which is significantly lower than the average of 5.57 million doses administered daily between June 21 and 30. The seven-day rolling average of shots administered per day fell to 3.54 million by July 10. The average number of daily inoculations fell in most major States in July, with Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat registering the highest drops. U.P., Punjab and Bihar recorded marginal increases.
