Coronavirus Vaccines Out Of Stock Notice At Many Hospitals In Ghaziabad Near Delhi
Even as the centre continues to claim that there is no shortage of vaccines against COVID-19, private hospitals in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad, near Delhi, are facing a crisis. A few private hospitals have not been carrying out vaccinations since Monday.
Many hospitals in Ghaziabad do not have clarity on when the next stock will arrive and have pasted notices at their entrance, saying they have run out of vaccine does. Hospitals have asked people to call them to check before they reach there.
The reports of vaccine shortage in Ghaziabad comes at a time when Maharashtra, the state worst-hit by Covid, has been reporting shortage of vaccines in several parts of the state, with some parts pausing inoculations.
"We don't have vaccine stock since Monday. We could vaccinate only 50 people on Monday instead of the usual 200. We have stopped vaccinations since then. There's no clarity on when next stock will come," Dr Alok Gupta, director Lyf Hospital in Ghaziabad's Indirapuram, told NDTV.
