Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has refused to consider the state’s request of offering COVID-19 vaccines to the younger lot to control the spread of the virus. Vaccinations are currently available for frontline and health workers and citizens above 45 years of age.
With the continuous complaints of vaccine shortage, Modi said that big vaccine factories cannot be established overnight and they have to prioritize whatever stock they have.
Meanwhile, vaccine centers in many states such as Maharashtra, are closing early because they do not have sufficient supplies and hence turning people away.
However, Indian Health Minister said that there is no shortfall of vaccines and there are more than 43 million doses in stock in the pipeline and 4 million people being vaccinated in the country every day.
