Gender-wise vaccination data

India has administered vaccine doses to over 305 million males and nearly 273 million females. That amounts to about 895 women vaccinated for every 1,000 men. This is lower than India’s overall sex ratio at birth, which is 924 females for every 1,000 males.

In states like Uttar Pradesh, this ratio drops to an abysmal 790 women for 1,000 males. In Delhi, despite relatively high vaccine coverage for its population, this ratio drops further to 735 females for every 1,000 males.

The outliers among these data are states like Kerala and Andhra Pradesh, where more women have been vaccinated than men.
