Maharashtra crosses 1-crore vaccination mark | Mumbai News

MUMBAI: Maharashtra has administered Covid-19 vaccine doses to more than one crore to date, a senior health official said on Sunday.
The vaccination campaign began across the country on January 16 this year and is currently underway for frontline workers and healthcare professionals, as well as those 45 and over.
“We exceeded a crore dose today. As of noon today, we have administered 1,00,38,421 doses,” Maharashtra’s Chief Secretary (Health) Pradeep Vyas said in a statement.
Amid reports of Maharashtra facing an acute doses shortage and hampering its vaccination campaign, Union minister Prakash Javadekar said Saturday the state has so far had 1.10 crore doses of the anti-Covid-19 vaccines receive.
Aside from Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan are the other two states that have received more than one crore dose, Javadekar had said.
Regarding the blame game between the center and the state government over the availability of vaccine doses, the BJP leader had said this was not the time to make policy.
Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope had claimed that many states smaller than Maharashtra in terms of population and number of patients had received more vaccine doses.
