Centre to provide over 12 crore doses for national COVID-19 vaccination programme in June

The Centre on Sunday said nearly 12 crore Covid-19 vaccine doses will be available in June, a substantial rise from the 7.94 crore doses that were supplied in May. According to the Health Ministry, 6.09 crore doses will be allocated by the Centre to states to vaccinate healthcare workers, frontline workers and persons above the age of 45 years. In a statement, the health ministry said the allocation of supplies to states and union territories is decided on the consumption pattern, population and vaccine wastage. "Visibility for availability of vaccines for the entire month of June 2021 has been provided well in advance to States/UTs," it said. "For the month of June, 6.09 crore doses of COVID vaccines will be supplied to the States and UTs for vaccination of priority group of Health Care Workers (HCWs), Front-Line Workers (FLWs) and person aged 45 years and above as free supply from Government of India," the ministry said. “The delivery schedule for this allocation will be shared in advance. States have been requested to direct the concerned officials to ensure rational and judicious utilization of allocated doses and minimize the vaccine wastage. The basic objective behind informing the States in advance of the quantum of free vaccine doses to be made available from Govt of India for 15/30 days and the total vaccine doses which are available for direct procurement by States is to ensure better planning and delivery of vaccine by States,” the ministry said. "In addition, more than 5.86 crore doses will be available for direct procurement by the state/UTs and Private Hospitals. Therefore, in June 2021 close to 12 crore doses will be available for the national COVID vaccination programme," health ministry said.
