New Delhi: The country is all set for a massive Covid-19 vaccination campaign starting from 16 January 2021. The entire initial purchase amount of 1.65 crore doses of Covishield and Covaxin vaccines against Covid-19 has been allocated to all states/union territories in proportion to the database of health care workers.
Therefore, there is no question of discriminating against any state in the allocation of vaccination doses. This is an initial supply of vaccine doses and will be replenished continuously over the coming week. Therefore, any apprehension being expressed about the short supply of vaccines is completely baseless and baseless.
States have been advised to organize their vaccination sessions keeping in view the 10 percent reserve/wastage dose and an average of 100 vaccinations per day/session. Therefore, states are advised not to make any haste on their part to conduct a large number of vaccinations per site per day.
States and Union Territories have also been advised to increase the number of vaccination session sites. As the vaccination process stabilizes and progresses, then these vaccination session sites will be progressively circulated daily.
