Is Mumbai Out of Vaccines Too? Mayor Kishori Pednekar Says Stocks Will Run Out Tomorrow
The ongoing COVID-19 vaccination drive in Mumbai will come to a halt from Friday as the stock of vaccine doses in the city is about to end, Mayor Kishori Pednekar told PTI on Thursday.
Maharashtra had announced on Thursday that 26 vaccination centres in Mumbai have been closed as they wait for more vaccine doses from the Centre.
The claim of vaccine shortage in Maharashtra has landed the state in hot water with the central government. Union Health Minister Vardhan, in an impassioned press release on Wednesday, had accused the state government of making false statements in order to deflect attention away from the outbreak's mismanagement.
