While the state government in Maharashtra was crying the lack of vaccine and many vaccination centers were closed from April 7 to April 9 due to lack of vaccine, on the other hand it news It is coming that vaccine doses were given in Jalna in excess of the prescribed limit.
Indian Express According to the report, NCP leader and Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope had ordered the health department to provide 77,000 vaccines to the hometown Jalna, which is much higher than the fixed quota of 17,000 vaccines in Jalna.
However, Tope has refused to give priority to any district and said that if it has happened then only to promote vaccination. Maharashtra was provided a dose of 26.77 lakh vaccines from the Center on 31 March, out of which additional vaccines were made available for Jalna.
Irregularity in vaccine supply to Jalna:
Talking about the figures till March 31, Jalna was below 30 districts in the case of active patients. In such a situation, where more infected patients were being found and immunization was also faster, the state health minister’s district was given more priority over them.
In Jalna district, which administered 600-1000 vaccines daily, vaccine doses were available for 15-18 days, yet 60,000 vaccine doses were sent to Jalna from Aurangabad on the orders of the State Immunization Officer Dr. DN Patil.
Bead district with more infections also received lower vaccine doses from Jalna while Beed was outperforming Jalna in vaccination. Only 9 districts that performed better than Jalna in vaccination received only higher doses than Jalna.
The reports According to it, when 25 vaccination centers were closed due to lack of vaccines in Mumbai on April 07, 50,000 doses were available in Jalna. However, after the request of the district health authorities, vaccine doses were sent from Jalna to other districts including Washim, Yavatmal and Parbhani where 15,000 vaccines were transferred from Jalna.
Devendra Fadnavis’s question to the Maharashtra government:
Leader of the Opposition in Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis responded to the allegations being made by the state’s Mahavikas Aghadi government on April 8 over the lack of vaccines. Showing the screenshot of Maharashtra’s DGIPR’s tweet, Fadnavis said that on April 06, DGIPR had reported that 1.06 crore vaccines were received by Maharashtra. 91 lakh vaccinations meant 1.5 million vaccines were still available, but still the government closed vaccination centers and gave the wrong news of vaccine shortage.
