Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP from Maharashtra Priyanka Chaturvedi writes to Dr Harsh Vardhan on an increase in Covid-19 cases and the various strains of the virus that are detected.
The Rajya Sabha MP has shared her concerns and suggestions regarding these matters so as to speed up the Covid immunization drive-
- Consider roping in private hospitals for immunization drive
- Open up more mobile vaccination centres
- Fix the issues coming up in CoWin App
Priyanka Chaturvedi asked that as per the Health Ministry data, Covid-19 vaccine supplies are under-utilised. If this is the case then shouldn’t we reconsider our policy of regulating the availability of vaccines?
“The CoWin App has been facing glitches with data. Many countries have benefitted from the Vaccine Maitri initiative by the Ministry of External Affairs, isn’t it high time that Indians get the same benefits of having a vaccine easily available for them?” she asked.
She further added, “I have urged him to consider roping in private hospitals in the immunisation drive, also consider opening up more mobile vaccination centres as well as plug the issues faced on the CoWin app. I’d request you to kindly consider de-regularising the sale of vaccine& capping the cost of the same to ensure that there is no heavy cost for the citizens to bear.”
