The third phase of the Covid-19 vaccine process in India is scheduled to commence from 1st May, but conducting the same in various big cities of the country seems much difficult and the reason behind this is the shortage of vaccines being faces at these big cities and states of India.
The Health Minister of Delhi, Satyendra Jain recently stated that there is no stock of coronavirus vaccines available in Delhi, at present, which is certainly implying that the vaccination process will not be able to commence from 1st May in Delhi.
While Odisha has also stated that the vaccine stock in the state will probably be refilled until 15th May and the 12 districts of the state aren’t able to vaccinate people due to no availability of vaccine. Hence, beginning with the third phase of vaccination isn’t possible from 1st May onwards.
Jammu & Kashmir are also waiting for their supplies of Covid-19 vaccines after the state ordered the same to the government, which is expected to be delivered latest by 20th May.
States such as Maharashtra and Rajasthan are also facing an acute shortage of coronavirus vaccines.
