In a response to Gandhi’s tweet questioning the availability of vaccines last month, Mandaviya said more than 13 crore doses were administered in July and the drive is going to accelerate this month.

“More than 13 crore doses were administered in India in the month of July. It is going to accelerate this month. We are proud of our healthcare workers for this achievement. “Now you too should be proud of them and the country,” Mandaviya said in a tweet in Hindi in response to Gandhi’s post.

Earlier during the day, Gandhi had tweeted in Hindi saying “July is gone, but the shortage of vaccine hasn’t gone away.”

He used the hashtag #WhereAreVaccines.
