Vaccine Crisis in Delhi: Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia informed today on Wednesday 12 May that Bharat Biotech has refused to supply additional doses of Covaxin. According to the information given by Sisodia, the dose of cocaine in the national capital is over, due to which about 100 vaccination centers built in 17 schools have been closed.
The Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi informed that the cocaine manufacturer has written a letter informing that it cannot be made available to the Delhi government due to non-availability of the vaccine under the instructions of the Concerned Government Government Official. On this, the Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi says that the central government is controlling the supply of vaccine.

6.6 million doses of exports, terrible mistake
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that sending 6.6 crore doses to other countries was a terrible mistake. The Deputy Chief Minister has recommended sharing the vaccine formula with other companies based in the country. Right now only two companies in India, Serum Institute of India and Bharat Biotech are making vaccines. Sisodia has recommended the approval of the vaccine available in the international market for use in India and asked all the states to give directions for vaccination of all within three months.

If vaccine is received, everyone claims vaccination in 3 months
A day ago, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also recommended the Central Government to share the vaccine formula with other companies of the country so that its production can be increased. According to Kejriwal, two companies are producing vaccines for 6-7 crores per month and at this rate it will take more than 2 years for vaccination of all in the country. The Chief Minister of Delhi said that at present, 1.25 lakh doses are being administered every day, which will soon be increased to 3 lakh. According to Kejriwal, if the vaccine is made available in the state, then within 3 months all the vaccination will be done.
