Telangana stops vax supply to private hospitals

The Telangana government on Thursday took full control of the available stocks of Covid-19 vaccines and told officials not to release any doses to private hospitals until further orders.

The decision came on a day when state health minister Eatala Rajender accused the Centre of botching up vaccine supply for 18-44 age group by centralising the distribution and not providing enough stocks.Interestingly, on Thursday, the state received three lakh doses of Covishield from Pune but officials say these will not be enough to manage the rush for the next two days when the third phase of vaccination starts on May 1.This is because Telangana has been vaccinating between 1.5 lakh and two lakh people daily.
