‘Problem not Covid vaccine shortage…’: Centre presents data over doses supply

Addressing a press conference, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said so far states and UTs have received 13,10,90,370 vaccine doses, out of which the total consumption, including wastage, has been 11,43,69,677.

"As per 11 am data, unutilised doses available with states and union territories for administration is 1,67,20,693.

From now till April end, 2,01,22,960 doses are in supply pipeline to states and UTs," he said.

"This clearly shows that the problem is of lack of better planning, not of vaccine doses shortage.

We have made available vaccine doses to states and UTs from time to time and as we told you earlier that to bigger states we give supply of four days at once and on fourth and fifth day we replenish the supply.

For smaller states, at once we supply 7-8 days vaccine doses and on seventh or eighth day their supply is replenished," he added.
