Covid-19 vaccination for all adults delayed in many states due to shortage

As Centre is all set to vaccinate adults between 18-45-year olds from May 1st, many states have expressed their inability to start the third phase of vaccination as they have run out of vaccines.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday appealed to people to not line up outside vaccination centres on May 1 as vaccines have not been delivered yet.

The Maharashtra government has decided to not roll out the vaccination drive unless the state gets 25-30 lakh vaccine vials immediately. The state government says it needs 12 crores dosages.

Meanwhile in Assam, Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma too expressed doubts. He not only cited the shortage of vaccines, but also pointed toward the results of Assembly elections in the state, scheduled for May 2.

The BJP govt Karnataka put the onus on pharma companies, saying they have not received any information from vaccine manufacturers about when they will be able to supply these doses.

The Congress ruled Punjab deferred the inoculation with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh making it clear that Phase III of vaccination for the 18-45 age group cannot be started as scheduled.

The Jammu and Kashmir administration said the new date for vaccination drive will be announced once the supply is established. Officials say that won't happen before May 20.

In Congress-ruled Rajasthan, the Gehlot govt has been informed by the Serum Institute of India, which manufactures Covishield, that it would not be able to supply doses before May 15.
