Vaccine: States can buy only two crore doses for 18+ people in May, Center sets the quota


The second wave of Coronavirus continues to wreak havoc in the country. People are increasingly being vaccinated to combat corona infection. At the same time, there has been a huge shortage of Kovid vaccine in the states these days, in view of which the Central Government has shared the formula of distribution of vaccine before the Supreme Court. Under this, the state governments will be given only 2 crore doses in May for the population of the 18-44 age group.

According to the central government, only two crore doses will be given to the states in May for vaccination of people in the age group of 18-44. The center said that 85 crore doses of the vaccine are expected to be produced this month. The Center said that it has also fixed quotas for dosages that need to be purchased by the states directly from the vaccine manufacturers.

The central government said that in May, two crore doses of vaccine would be sent to the states for people in the age group of 18-44 to ensure that the vaccine dose was evenly distributed. Let us tell you that some states have complained that their allocation is inadequate. According to the official figures, there are about 59.5 crore people between 18 and 44 years in the country.

... so that all states get equal vaccine dose

At the end of last week, the central government has filed its response in the Supreme Court. It states that states are procuring vaccines from manufacturers. The central government, in consultation with vaccine manufacturers, has set quotas based on the population of the age group of 18–44 in each state. States will only buy fixed doses of vaccine so that there is no disparity in vaccine availability between states.

Conditions for Central Government Vaccine

The central government has made certain conditions mandatory for vaccine manufacturers in India. Accordingly, both widely used shots have been made in India. Companies have to supply 50 percent of the vaccine stock to the central government. Subsequently, the company can sell the vaccine to private buyers and state governments.

Explain that the world's largest vaccination campaign is going on in the country. The third phase of the vaccination campaign has been started on May 1, under which all people above 18 years of age are being vaccinated.
