According to Reuters, the technical bug with the Co-Win application developed by India to coordinate the campaign resulted in only 190,000 people being vaccinated on the first day, instead of more than 300,000 as planned. Officials in at least four Indian states said many health workers and those about to be vaccinated did not receive notification through the Co-Win app.

More than a dozen Israelis were paralyzed after vaccination
At least 13 citizens of the country have suffered mild facial paralysis after receiving vaccines jointly developed by pharmaceutical firms Pfizer (USA) and BioNTech (Germany), according to Israeli health officials.
Doctors estimate the number of similar side effects may be higher, according to the online newspaper Ynet. They expressed skepticism about whether a second dose of vaccine should be continued in patients with facial paralysis.
However, the Israeli Ministry of Health recommends that doctors should give the population 2 full doses of the vaccine but need to wait for the side effects of the first shot to disappear in cases of facial paralysis.
In November 2020, the Jewish government signed an agreement to buy 8 million doses of Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine. More than 20% of the country's 9 million people have received their first dose of vaccine since the start of the mass immunization program. At least 2 elderly people with chronic illnesses died after vaccination.
