India has administered more COVID-19 vaccines than the U.S.

India had administered 32.36 crore doses of COVID-19 vaccines, while the U.S. had administered 32.33 crore doses as of June 28, 2021.

On June 28, 2021, the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) published a press release saying that the country reached another milestone in its COVID-19 vaccine effort. In terms of total COVID-19 vaccination doses administered, India surpassed the U.S.

COVID-19 vaccines were administered from January 16, 2021, in India, whereas the U.S. started it on December 14, 2020. From January 16 to June 28, India increased its vaccination coverage by 32,36,63,297 vaccine doses, resulting in 43,21,898 sessions, bringing India's full vaccination coverage to 32.36 crores. As of July 6, 2021, MoHFW reported a total of 36.431 crore distributed vaccines.

From December 14, 2020, to June 28, 2021, the U.S. administered 32,33,27,328 vaccine doses. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that as of July 6, 2021, the country administered 33,12,14,347 vaccines and distributed 383,068,840 doses.
