In September 2020, a multi-disciplinary team at Takshashila came out with a policy proposal to vaccinate 80% of India’s population by December 2021. Seven months down the line, co-authors Shambhavi Naik, Mihir Mahajan, and Pranay Kotasthane reflect on the government’s vaccine deployment strategy and compare it with Takshashila’s recommendations. They also discuss ways to accelerate vaccination going forward.
