Aaditya Thackeray – Minister, Maharashtra Govt.:
CM Uddhav Thackeray ji has written to the Prime Minister to lower the age of eligibility of vaccination to 25.
This will help us vaccinate a larger population that is young and working.
He also has asked for 1.5 crore more doses for Maharashtra, as we have ramped up our vaccination.
Currently we are the leading state in vaccination.
He also expressed his gratitude to the Govt of India for accepting his earlier suggestion of lowering the age to 45 for vaccination.
