Jharkhand Health Minister requests Harsh Vardhan to provide 10 lakh vaccines for 1st dose

With the surge in COVID-19 cases, states across the country are facing shortage of vaccines.

In this regard, Jharkhand Health Minister, Banna Gupta expressed concern and said, "We have requested Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan to immediately provide us around 10 lakh vaccines for first dose".

"Around 83 lakh people need to get first and second doses of vaccine.

It means we'll need around 1.60 cr doses.

We're getting it gradually.

We do have vaccines available with us but there has been a shortage at some locations.

Therefore, we have spoken to Union Health Minister," the minister said.

"We have stock for the next 1-2 days.

We have made a request to the Union Home Minister and I am hopeful that he will provide us the vaccine," he added.
