Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Ashok Gelot wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him to “personally intervene” to ensure adequate supplies COVID-19 vaccines for state.
In a June 26 letter to the prime minister, Gehlot said that while Rajasthan has created the capacity to vaccinate more than 15,000 people a day, the state’s daily vaccinations are limited by the supply received from the central government.
“Currently, our daily vaccinations are limited by the supply received from the central government. The average daily dose of vaccine received since the beginning of the vaccination campaign for more than 18 years was only 3 to 4 lakhs, ”Gelot said in a letter.
CM added in the letter that over Rs 2.36 crores of people in Rajasthan have already been vaccinated to date and that the state has achieved negative (less than 0%) casualties.
“Thanks to our efforts, the number of people who received early vaccinations was one of the highest. As a result, by the end of July 2021, more than 70 thousand people will receive a second dose, ”the letter says.
Gelot said it is important to ensure 100% vaccinations to prevent a third wave from occurring.
“The importance of ensuring 100% vaccination as early as possible to prevent the third wave of Covid and to ensure that people can resume activities related to their livelihood cannot be overstated. Therefore, I urge you to intervene personally and instruct the parties concerned to provide the state with an adequate supply of vaccines, ”Gelot said in his letter.
