Ep. 560: Reflecting on India's COVID-19 Vaccination Strategy
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.
If these policy conversations interest you, consider applying for Takshashila's Graduate Certificate in Public Policy. Applications for the monsoon cohort close soon. You can check out our courses here.
