Photos: Delhi halts vaccination for those under-45 after hitting 5 million jabs

  • The Delhi government has announced that centres catering to the 18-44 age group will be shut from May 22 with no new stocks expected for the rest of the month. States have to buy their stock of vaccines for this age group directly from manufacturers on the basis of a Union government approved formula. According to the Union government, for the month of May, India has a cumulative supply of 73 million doses. Half of the monthly production goes to the Union government that sends vials to states to vaccine people above the age of 44 for free. The remaining half is split between the state governments and private hospitals.
