# Vaccinations @86: India has administered over 86 crore total doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. Uttar Pradesh tops the list in terms of the highest number of first doses administered, followed by Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

# More than just Covaxin: The story behind the vaccine development and dose of innovation the Ellas have brought to India’s biotech industry.

# Licence to travel: The recent Indo-UK imbroglio has illustrated the inadequacy of a system that views a vaccine certificate or passport as an additional “licence to travel”, something that public health experts have been calling out for sometime now.

#Vaccination primes economy?: India’s economy showed signs it’s ready to accelerate, thanks to its services sector resuming expansion and manufacturing activity retaining growth momentum in August, says a report.

The monthly expansion in services and manufacturing activity coincided with relatively low new Covid-19 cases and a pick-up in the pace of vaccinations — more than 834 million doses have been administered so far in the nation of 1.3 billion people. That said, less than a fifth of the population is fully vaccinated and risks of a third wave of infections persist.
