Service charge fixed at Rs 150 for the vaccine.
After fixing the service charge for the vaccine, private hospitals will not go to societies and public places and apply the vaccine. Hospitals say that even Rs 150 will not cover the cost of logistics. Therefore, the vaccine will be applied only in the hospital.
New Delhi. Capping on the Service Charge for Corona Vaccine will make it difficult for private hospitals to install the vaccine on on-site demand. The Prime Minister has announced to charge only 150 service charge in addition to the fixed price for the vaccine. That is, private hospitals can take an additional service charge of Rs 150 for the vaccine at the fixed price of Rs 600 for Coveshield, but private hospitals say that it will be difficult to get the vaccine in a society or public place for Rs 750.
The Prime Minister has fixed Rs 150 while capping the service charge for corona vaccine at private hospitals. That is, after June 21, a total of Rs 750 will have to be paid for installing Kovishield in private hospitals. The cost of the vaccine is Rs 600 and the service charge of Rs 150 will have to be paid. After this decision, private hospitals say that it will be difficult to get the vaccine by going to societies or other public places. Logistics and other expenses will not be able to cover 150 rupees. That is, later people will have to go to private hospitals and get the vaccine.
At present, all the private hospitals are installing the vaccine by making centers in societies or public places with the help of RWA and administration and on demand. Here people are getting walk-in vaccine, that is, there is no need to take a slot after registering. People can go straight and get the vaccine. In this regard, the spokesperson of Max Hospital Vaishali says that after June 21, there may be no need to set up such centers, most of the people get the first dose of vaccination. It will be difficult to build a center outside the hospital for Rs 150.
