As India recorded the highest number of COVID-19 infections in a day on Thursday, April 8, some states are facing a shortage of vaccines, particularly Maharashtra and Odisha.

Most of the vaccination centres in Mumbai and surrounding districts reported a shortage of vaccines resulting in the centres being shut down.

Though India is the largest producer of COVID-19 vaccines, many states are facing shortage of vaccines and have appealed to the Modi government, which is the central distributing authority for the vaccines, to release more doses.

Dominic Xavier wonders why Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan and his health ministry are not urgently addressing this vaccine shortage at a time when the nation confronts its worst health crisis.
