Delhi government halts vaccination drive for the 18-44 years age group due to short supply of doses


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today ordered the closure of vaccination centres for the 18 to 44 years age group due to lack of doses. The CM wrote to PM Narendra Modi for immediate supply of jabs and increasing the quota of the city. He also gave suggestions to PM Modi to resolve the supply crisis. Two of which were to procure vaccines from foreign manufacturers and to invite foreign firms for production in India.

“The city requires 80 lakh doses a month to vaccinate people in three months. But it only received 16 lakh doses in May and the Centre has further decreased Delhi’s quota in June to 8 lakh doses“, Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal said it was a matter of relief that the speed of coronavirus spread has significantly slowed down in Delhi but cautioned that it did not mean the threat was averted and emphasised on maintaining all the precautions.

Delhi reported around 2,200 cases in the past 24 hours with a positivity rate of 3.5 per cent.
