Shortage of Covid Doses
Civic officials said that in the last 3 months, more than 300 calls are received every day to people who have taken their first dose of covid. But still, those people show the second dose of covid as due. He has said that around 5,000 people have taken their second covid dose using 1 different ID.
When asked about how all the vax beneficiaries were allowed to take the second dose of covid. Using a different ID, the officials then said that some of these people took their covid dose in panic.
They have said that they belong to that group. When we used to have a lot of shortage of covid doses. And this campaign also used to stop. Also, due to the long duration, they are not able to remember in any way which ID they used for this earlier. Many even completely refuse to cooperate. And do not disclose at all whether they have been caught in the past or what ID they entered the first time.
Officials have also said that many had also given preference to other districts like the Bhandara district. Where doses would be available to meet the Covid dosage very quickly.
