Maharashtra today said it is “slowing down the Covid vaccination process for those in 18-45 age group to focus on those aged above that due to a shortage of doses in the state. There will, however, be no stoppage of vaccination, State Health Minister Rajesh Tope said today.
“We are slowing down the process (of vaccination) for 18-44 because we don’t have vaccines. We don’t want to stop, but right now we have no vaccines, so we will be giving vaccines right now to 45+ only,” Mr Tope told NDTV. “A discussion is on with the Chief Minister on getting more vaccine.”
