Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi decided to address the nation on December 25 at 9:45 pm in the wake of rising cases of Omicron infections in India. He announced that people under the age of 18 will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccines from January 3 (first Monday of 2022).

People can be given preventive doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from January 10. This is aimed for people above the age of 60, with comorbidities, based on doctor's advice.

The unexpected address raised a lot of eyebrows. These are the highlights from his address. "We have 18 lakh isolation beds, 5 lakh oxygen beds, 1.4 lakh ICU beds, 90,000 beds reserved for children (including ICU and non-ICU beds) across the country," he said in his address.

"While virus is getting mutated, our ability to innovate has also improved," Modi added.

Today, more than 61% of India's adults have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the Indian Prime Minister.

A study of the first 183 cases showed that nine out of 10 cases with Omicron infections in India had already received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccines.
