The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been unstoppable across the globe and India. The application of strategy “test, track and treat” has not been sufficient in halting the pandemic. Arrival of vaccines on the horizon has raised hopes of termination of pandemic in the near future. It should be emphasized that epidemiological relevance, efficacy, safety, operational feasibility, and social acceptance are minimum prerequisites for successful implementation of a new vaccination campaign. The ambitious launch of COVID vaccination by India at the juncture of a declining pandemic needs to be discussed in relation to its timing, economic implications, and ramifications on public health. This article aims to analyze this vaccination strategy.
