New DelhiThere was great news on the vaccination campaign on Monday. On the day of International Yoga Day, when the war against Corona was waged under the new guidelines, it became amazing. On Monday, 86.16 lakh doses of corona vaccine were given, which is a record till date. It is a matter of great happiness that the speed of vaccination has doubled in a single day.
It is now expected that by the end of this year, the target of vaccinating the entire adult population of the country will be achieved. The reason behind this is that the limit of 10 million vaccine doses per day required for the target is not far off. But, till just a day ago, the target of 10 million doses per day on an average seemed too big. center-state tussleActually, there has been a long period of tussle between the central and state governments over the availability of the vaccine. Because of this the vaccination campaign could never gain the desired momentum. This is the reason that before Monday’s 86.16 lakh doses, only 48 lakh doses were recorded, which was on April 1. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced changes to the vaccination guidelines on June 7, which came into effect on June 21, the International Day of Yoga. The amazing thing is that on the very first day of the implementation of the new guidelines, a new record was set with a margin of almost 100%. States got the responsibilityIn fact, the central government again took the entire responsibility of vaccination in its own hands. It also withdrew the partial responsibility placed on the shoulders of the states. Now the central government is itself buying 75% of their total production from companies making corona vaccine and distributing it among the states. Remember that the vaccination campaign against the Kovid-19 epidemic started on January 16 this year, and after a few days, the matter of non-availability of vaccine in different states started coming to the fore. Then the states started pressuring the center that instead of centralizing the vaccination campaign, it should also ensure the participation of the state governments.85 lakh vaccine in 1 day: Rahul said – good, but sitting with Surjewala tightened his taunt on ModiProblems faced by the statesThen the central government gave the states the right to buy the vaccine from companies 25% of their production. The Center said that now the states can take the responsibility of vaccination for the age group of 18 to 44 years on their shoulders. However, there were many hurdles in the way of states buying the vaccine on their own. Foreign companies like Pfizer and Moderna even refused to sell the vaccine to the state governments. Only then did the states get an idea of the ground reality. Supreme Court interventionOn the other hand, due to the tussle between the centre-states, assembly elections in five states, the pace of the vaccination campaign came to a halt, and the matter reached the Supreme Court. The central government presented its stand before the Supreme Court. He told the court, “States are procuring vaccines from manufacturers. The central government, in consultation with vaccine manufacturers, has fixed quotas based on the population of each state between the ages of 18-44. States will procure vaccines only in fixed quantities. So that there is no disparity in the availability of vaccines between the states.
Delay in vaccination of 18+Keep in mind that at that time the vaccination campaign in the country was being conducted on two grounds. People above 45 years of age were being provided free vaccines by the central government while the state governments were also given the responsibility for immunization of the age group of 18 to 44 years. The vaccination campaign for this age group was started from May 1. But, in the absence of adequate availability of vaccine, the vaccination campaign for this age group could not be started across the country. Many states started some centers in a symbolic way and some states took too long. Now assured of adequate vaccineBut, now BJP President JP Nadda says that 2.57 billion doses of corona vaccine will be available in the country by December. According to him, 10 crore vaccines will be available in June, 17 crore in July, 19 crore in August, 42 crore in September, 46 crore in October, 56 crore in November and 59 crore in December. This means that now there will be no shortage of vaccines with the states and the vaccination record made on Monday will soon be broken and the pace of the new record will also be maintained.
