The tiny kingdom of Bhutan, nestled between India and China, has managed to fully vaccinate a major chunk of its eligible population against Covid-19.

A recent health bulletin update by the Royal Government of Bhutan stated that it had vaccinated 90.2 per cent of the eligible population with both doses of the vaccine during the drive held between July 20 to 26.

UNICEF Bhutan Representative, Will Parks, in a statement on July 27 congratulated Bhutan for executing “arguably the fastest vaccination campaign during a pandemic”.

In April, the country had similarly raced ahead of the world in vaccinating 93 per cent of its adult population with the first dose.
