Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said Delhi is going to get 3,83,000 doses for 45+ age group in May, but there will be no more vaccines for people aged 18 to 44 years.
Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said there is only three days’ worth of vaccine left for the 18-44-year-olds in Delhi and the central government has refused to give any more vaccines this month.
Quoting a letter received from the Centre, Mr Sisodia said Delhi is going to get 3,83,000 doses for 45+ age group in May, but there will be no more vaccines for people aged 18 to 44 years.
“We currently have vaccine stocks that will last for four days for people above the age of 45, while for those aged 18-44, only 3 days of vaccine is left,” Mr Sisodia said.
The Delhi government, he said, has written to the Centre asking for more vaccines.
It has also demanded that the data on vaccine allocation by the two companies — Serum Institute the makers of Covishield and Bharat Biotech, the Covaxin manufacturer — be made public.
“This is so that we can know how much vaccine has been given for people between 18 and 44 years and how much vaccine has been given for those above 45 years. It is also necessary for Delhi to know how many people are going to the government and how many to private hospitals for vaccination,” he added.
