P Chidambaram, Former Finance Minister :
Let’s face the truth even if the Government is unwilling to do so.
Not all 94 crore adults will receive the first dose of vaccination before December 31. We will not achieve 100% coverage.
A very, very large number will not receive the second dose of vaccination.
The booster dose proposal is shrouded in confusion. Which is the booster dose vaccine for Covishield? Not another dose of Covishield, I hope.
The chicken have come home to roost. We are paying the price for delayed orders, delayed payment, non-licensing of Pfizer & Moderna, and insufficient production and supply
