As Delhi battles the second corona wave and is now in the second week of the extended lockdown, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind kejriwal has made a big announcement.
He announced that : “Delhi government has decided to provide free vaccines to everyone above 18 years of age. Today we have given the approval for the purchase of 1.34 crore vaccines. We will make an effort to ensure that it is purchased soon and administered at the earliest to people”.
On the necessity he remarked , We’ve seen children below 18 getting infected too. Some died. It’s time to think for them too. If these vaccines are safe & effective for them, they should be given these. If not, then I hope new vaccines will be developed soon that will be effective & safe for children:
Batting for same price for vaccines, he said, One vaccine producer said that they’ll provide vaccines to the state govts at Rs 400/dose & the second producer said that they’ll provide at Rs 600/dose. Both of them will keep the price at Rs 150/dose for the Central govt. I hope that the prices remain the same for all.
