Maharashtra Covid Vaccination has won the lead for nearly four months in terms of total number of vaccinations. But in the last 12 days, Uttar Pradesh has suddenly caught a fast pace. Right now, UP is vaccinating more than Maharashtra every day.
Maharashtra backward in UP in terms of 18+ vaccination Maharashtra has lagged far behind UP in terms of vaccination in the age group of 18 to 44. Vaccination of 18+ people has started from May 1. UP has done 13.61 lakh dose vaccinations in this category so far. At the same time, the number in Maharashtra is only 7.47 lakhs. Priyanka Chaturvedi says that UP has recently been given a major part of the vaccine. He said- ‘We have drawn global tenders for the 18-44 age group but Pfizer and Moderna have problems with compensation rules.’ She says that in the states and private hospitals, there has also been discrimination on the value of the vaccine. Now the state government is facing problems because the vaccine producers want to deliver the vaccine to the hospitals first. Vineet Sehgal says that the number of vaccination in UP is increasing because the state is working very hard to end the hesitation in the villages. He said – We have surveillance committees in 97 thousand villages which are running campaigns on vaccination and testing. We have also run a public campaign named ‘Mera Gaon Corona Mukta’. Under this camp, prize money has also been kept for the villages of Corona to be freed. Vaccination has also been included in this campaign. There is not a single active case of corona in 68 percent of the villages of UP.
