New Delhi: The campaign of vaccination, which started from June 21, is being accused of slow pace of vaccination in Delhi. Now answering this, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain has raised questions on Madhya Pradesh’s record vaccination. Satyendar Jain has said that we are not doing like Madhya Pradesh, not to vaccinate lakhs of people in 1 day and we are not able to do even a thousand in 1 day. We are engaging 75-80 thousand people daily. In Madhya Pradesh, even the percentage of what it took on June 21 could not be applied the next day.
Know what Satyendra Jain said on the questions?
Question- There are allegations that vaccination is being slowed down in Delhi, what is the reason behind this and is it true?
answer- Like Madhya Pradesh, they are not doing it, they are not able to invest lakhs in 1 day and they are not able to do even thousand in 1 day. We are not doing vaccination for show photo op or event management. Regular vaccines are being administered to the people of Delhi. Everyone knows that there was a problem of vaccine for the last many days and the vaccine which is still there will end after 10-12 days. And we have to make arrangements for those who have to get the second dose, so the vaccine is being administered accordingly.
Question- The BJP and the central government are alleging that about 8 and a half lakh doses are for 45+ and about 2-2.5 lakh doses were for 18+ but the vaccination that happened was only for a few thousand people.
answer- Vaccination is not just for one day. This is not an event. These people are saying that why they did not put it on that day. But we are employing 75-80 thousand people daily. The day before yesterday took more than what it took today will take more than that. The next day he could not even apply 1% of what he got in Madhya Pradesh. If you apply the vaccine on only one day in a month, it is better or if you apply it daily, it is better.
Question- What is now being used to put the stock of 45+ to 18+? Vaccine is all in one now?
answer- Now the 18+ center has said that if you give for everyone, then everything becomes one, there is no difference in that. Now everyone above 18 years is common. Earlier there was a separate category above 60 years, there was a separate category above 45 years, then a separate category came above 18 years. Then 2 remained 18+ and 45+. From today there is a category which is above 18 years.
Question- Will the availability of the vaccine which is mentioned separately in the vaccination data, become one now?
answer- Everything will become one.
Question- Will the first dose of Covaccine be given now?
answer- There is still some shortage of Covaccine so it has less centers, CoveShield has more stock then it has more centres.
Question- Will people be able to get their first dose of Co-vaccine in the month of July?
answer- The time frame for the second dose of Covaccine is short, 28 days. Those who have taken the first dose, then they have to get the second dose on time. The Central Government has extended the time of Coveshield, due to which people with second dose are not coming now, only those with first dose are coming. After a few days the time for the second dose will also come. At present, there are about 50 lakh people in Delhi who have got the first dose, 10-12 lakh people have got the second dose. So there are about 40 lakh such people who will get the second dose done.
BJP people who are making noise. Madhya Pradesh had applied 3 lakh 12 thousand doses on 21st June and 120 doses yesterday. This report has been published in the newspapers itself. Haryana had spent 2 lakh 50 thousand yesterday, it was 63 thousand. If it happened less than once, for several days, he had kept preparing for an event. After stopping the rest, everyone was given a one-day appointment. Just to show that we put in so much.
Question- Does it look like the hoarding was being done for a special event?
answer- Exactly like that.
Question- Vaccine stock of 45+ will now be used for 18+ also, so is there any separate arrangement for this, more centers will be made?
answer- Now everything has become common, it has become a category, whoever is 18+, they are all in one category. All centers will now be common.
Question- Can anyone 45+ and 18+ go anywhere to get vaccinated, by appointment or even walk-in?
answer- Even if you do not take an appointment, it will be done on walk-in also.
Question- What are the preparations of PWD regarding the rains? Have the drains been cleaned?
answer- Issued Flood Control Order in Delhi and all the drains are almost cleared. Work remains pending at some places, that too will be completed before the 30th. All preparations have been made so that there is no water logging in Delhi.
Question- Especially Minto Road is always under question. Last time you guys said that a separate pump is being installed in it to remove water, has it been installed?
answer- Pump has been installed. Looks like there shouldn’t be any problem this time.
