Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia alleged that the Center is being adamant on the distribution system of anti-Covid-19 vaccines. Surrounding the Center regarding the vaccine, he asked the question that how private hospitals are getting the vaccine while the states lack it. Highlighting the shortage of corona vaccine in Delhi, Sisodia said on Saturday that the vaccine would not be available for people between 18 and 44 in Delhi before June 10. People of 18-44 years will have to wait longer.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia accused the distribution system of anti-Covid-19 vaccines of adopting obstinate behavior and said that only a few private hospitals are getting the vaccine to the youth. The vaccine is found free in government centers while in private hospitals the cost is 1000-1200 per dose. Manish Sisodia said that in the month of June, Delhi is expected to get 5.5 lakh vaccine doses. At present, people of 18-44 years of age in Delhi have stopped getting vaccinated in all government centers because there is no vaccine.
He said that there are 92 lakh youth in Delhi, who are in the age group of 18-45 years. For these we need 1.84 crore vaccine doses. The central government has given us only 4.5 lakh doses in April, 3.67 lakh doses in May and 5.5 lakh doses in June, which will be given from June 10. If these 92 lakh youth have to be saved, then the only way is to give them the vaccine and protect them by applying both doses. Sisodia said that the central government is sitting with a horoscope on vaccine distribution.
