Covid 19 Vaccination is seen as the biggest weapon against Corona but the lack of vaccine is making the road to vaccination difficult. In Uttarakhand too, due to this, the vaccination of 18-44 age group has been stalled but there is a possibility of some relief in the month of June.Next month, more than 2.5 lakh doses will be available for immunization for 18-44 year olds.
Vaccination of 18-44 age group started in Uttarakhand from May 10. So far, two lakh 68 thousand 584 persons of this age group have been vaccinated in the state. However, vaccination is now discontinued due to a lack of vaccines. Currently, vaccination is continuing only in few districts where there is little stock available. It will take some time to recover from this situation, but by mid-June, the situation will start to return to normal.
State Immunization Officer Dr. Kuldeep Martolia says that on June 9, 13160 doses of vaccine will be delivered for this age group. After this, supply will continue to run continuously till 1 July. During this period, two lakh 13 thousand 640 doses of Covidshield and 40 thousand 950 doses of Covaxine will be available. That is a total of two lakh 54 thousand 590 doses of vaccine are going to be received. In such a situation, the vaccination campaign will gain momentum again in June.
