The Indian COVID Alliance’s (TICA) Financing Track outlines the allocations of funds set aside by the Central Government to detail what percentage of the adult population in India can be successfully vaccinated given this budget. We estimate that the Rs 35,000 crores (USD 5 bn) allocated by the Central government in the Union Budget for 2021-22 could cover the vaccine costs for half of the adult population. In addition, a significant portion of the costs of immunisation, mainly administrative resources, will be borne by states’ budgets. However, they have a low capacity to absorb these costs.
