Some Hospitals in Ghaziabad Say They Have Run out of Shots amid Covid Vaccine Shortage Outcry
A fresh surge in Covid-19 cases in the country has also prompted a growing demand for vaccines as citizens and authorities seek ways to limit the squeeze of restrictive measures and usher in a semblance of normalcy in the thick of the crisis. But, reports indicate, supply is less than adequate, even as the Centre on Wednesday termed allegations of vaccine shortage 'utterly baseless'. In Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad city, for instance, many doctors and medical centres are telling people that they have run out of doses.
'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.
