“I want all the people of the country to be vaccinated, but what this government is doing with vaccines is not correct. The BJP-ruled states are getting more vaccines and the non-BJP states are not getting vaccines. This biased attitude is not expected from the Centre,” she added.
Assuring that the state is capable of administering 10 lakh vaccines per day, the Chief Minister said in her letter to the Prime Minister, “We didn’t get vaccines for the last seven days. As per our assessment, the state needs around 11.5 crore more doses of Covid 19 vaccine to cover everyone in the eligible categories, and going by the current level of supply, it may take rather a longer period before everyone is covered. So far we have received only 2.12 crore dose.”
“The state had started the vaccination drive on January 16, 2021, and till date, we have already administered 2.5 crore doses (1.81 crore 1st doses, 0.70 crore 2nd doses) against a supply of 2.12 crore doses from the Government of India, 18 lakhs procured by the state government and the balance by the private sector,” the Chief Minister wrote.
