A day after India records it’s highest spike in covid cases with 2.7Lakh+ & many states entred or planning to enter a lockdown, central government has approved vaccination for all above 18 years of age.
On Monday’s evening a meeting chaired by chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ended with the announcement of vaccination’s next phase. The move comes up in the wake of ramping the vaccination across India, which according to reports is lagging behind in vaccinating its citizen (% per population) in comparison to other countries.
Vaccine drive’s 3rd phase guidelines are :
1. Manufactures to supply 50% of their vaccines to the Centre and the remaining 50% to the state governments.
2. Manufactures to make an advance and transparent declaration about it’s supply to each state, private hospital, govt. hospital, central hospital, vaccine centres etc. And private hospital and vaccine centres should be transparent about their vaccine prices.
3. Vaccine should continue to be free at all Govt. Vaccine centres.
