Union Health Ministry: 12 Cr vaccine jabs to be available for the drive by June 2021

As per the latest updates from the Union Health Ministry, nearly 12 Cr vaccines are ready and available to be inculcated in the vaccination programme in June 2021. Similar statements have been received by the ministry continuously for the last few weeks. A complete road map was issued by the ministry of health about the distribution of doses till December. However, the on-ground shortage of doses says otherwise. The argument backed a clarification in contradiction to this shortage by saying that when a monthly distribution takes time to pass through various phases of drug laboratory testing, production, quality checks and distribution to states in batches, despite sufficient stocks. As per sources, Bharat biotech also backed this argument, stating that it takes an average of 120 days after production for the jab to reach the final receiver.
