COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout in India: State by State
The Government of India plans to vaccinate 300 million Indians by August 2021. This ambitious initial goal to distribute the COVID-19 vaccine comes as more than 10 million people have been exposed to COVID-19, and more than 155,000 people have died after contracting the virus. For policymakers as well as the general public to track vaccine rollout, we present a LIVE COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout Dashboard for the states of India. The dashboard presents two metrics to compare the vaccine rollout across states: Total Count and Count Per 1 Million, along with a visualization of the trajectory of vaccine rollout including projected future trends.

The data was taken from covid19india.org. The dashboard updates daily at 3 pm EST with new data. Vaccine data is reported on a 1 day lag. India's population data is taken from statisticstimes.com and represents each state's population in 2019. The forecast model used is computed by Power BI and uses the seasonal algorithm (ETS AAA) or more commonly referred to as the Holt-Winters algorithm. More details on the forecasting model can be found here.
