Maharashtra’s Pune Shuts 109 Covid-19 Vaccination Centers Due to Vaccine Shortage

As per the latest reports, 109 Covid-19 vaccination centers have been closed in Maharashtra's Pune due to a shortage of vaccines as alleged by Supriya Sule, Lok Sabha MP and Nationalist Congress Party leader. Sule also alleged that many people had to return home without getting vaccinated. In her tweet, Supriya Sule clarified that Pune District vaccinated 55,539 persons in 391 vaccination centres on Wednesday where many people had to go back without being vaccinated as there was no stock left.

"109 centres are shut today as there is no stock of Covid-19 vaccines. Due to lack of stock, we might not be able to continue vaccination, but we remain determined to save lives by breaking the chain of infection and help the economy get back on its feet as early as possible”, said Supriya Sule in her tweet. She further requested Harsh Vardhan, Union Health Minister to help with the coronavirus vaccines. 

The news comes after Rajesh Tope, Health Minister, Maharashtra highlighted the issue of quickly-diminishing stocks across the state, stating that the same would happen within a span of 3 days. Tope stated that he has informed Dr. Harsh Vardhan about the dire situation. He said, “14 lakh doses are available as of now, which means we have stock for only 3 days.  In case, 5 lakh people are vaccinated on a daily basis, we would need 40 lakh doses.”

Contrary to Maharashtra’s Health Minister’s statement, Harsh Vardhan alleged that Maharashtra was trying to cover its "failure". Also that Maharashtra is trying to create panic among people by demanding novel coronavirus vaccines without inoculating the eligible beneficiaries in the first place. 

According to the Union Health Minister,  allegations of vaccine shortage are baseless and improvement is required from Maharashtra’s end. Harsh Vardhan also highlighted the "lackadaisical" attitude of the government of Maharashtra that puts the entire country’s vaccination status in question.
