The second wave of the Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc in the country. Increasingly, people are being vaccinated to fight Corona infection. At the same time, there is a huge shortage of Covid vaccine in states these days, as the central government swapped formula for vaccine distribution before the Supreme Court. Hereby, state governments will only be administering 2 crore doses in May to people aged 18-44.
According to the central government, only two crore doses will be given to states in May to immunize people in the 18-44 age group. The center said that 85 crores doses of the vaccine are expected to be produced this month. The center said it has also set specific quotas for the doses that states should buy directly from vaccine manufacturers.
The central government said that in May, two crore doses of the vaccine will be sent to states for people in the age group of 18 to 44 years to ensure that the vaccine dose is evenly distributed. Let us tell you that some countries have complained that their allocations are insufficient. According to official figures, there are around 59.5 crores of rupees between 18 and 44 years old in the country.
… so that all states get an equal dose of vaccine
Last weekend, the central government filed its response in the Supreme Court. It states that states buy vaccines from manufacturers. The central government, in consultation with vaccine manufacturers, has set quotas based on the population ages 18-44 in each state. States will only purchase fixed doses of the vaccine so that there is no disparity in vaccine availability between states.
Central government vaccine conditions
The central government has made certain conditions mandatory for vaccine manufacturers in India. Accordingly, both of the widely used snaps were made in India. Companies are required to provide 50 percent of their vaccine stock to the central government. Then, the company could sell the vaccine to private and state buyers.
Explain that the largest vaccination campaign in the world is taking place in the country. The third phase of the vaccination campaign began on May 1, during which all people over the age of 18 are vaccinated.
