There are media reports making rounds that Jammu and Kashmir is virtually running out of covid vaccines. Non availability of vaccines is becoming a problem and even in Srinagar city people are not getting vaccines at the designated centres. Such shortage of vaccines in Jammu and Kashmir has created lot of problems on the ground even as Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha has recently said that he has set a 10 days dead line for the vaccination to be completed for the age group of above 45 years.
He has asked the health officials of Jammu and Kashmir to achieve the target of 100 percent vaccination especially first dose for above 45 age group.
Lack of vaccines in the health centres is a frustrating experience for the common people who are regularly going to get vaccinated as the second wave of pandemic is spreading very fast.
Government has recently said that they will get a bulk of vaccine stock from the Central Government as it is already announced by the administration that it would be administered on the people free of cost.
The number of fatalities has increased and more people are being consumed by covid 19 in the hospitals of Jammu and Kashmir. Recently three doctors in the Jammu region died due to covid 19 infections after struggling in these hospitals. Jammu and Kashmir administration has claiming that they have enough vaccines available, but on the ground there is a virtually halt to the vaccination process in most of the districts of Jammu and Kashmir.
