HYDERABAD: Those turning up for their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Wednesday were left to wait for hours outside vaccination centres with many of them left with limited doses of the shot. Some centres even had ‘only 100 doses available’ displayed outside their premises.
Furious over the shortage, residents got into heated arguments with officials at some centres, demanding to know why doses were not available. “I came here at around 8 am; it’s 12 pm now and I am still waiting for my turn,” rued KV Rao, a resident of Kukatpally visiting a government vaccination centre.
While the pace picked up at private hospitals, sources said that sufficient vaccine doses were not available at all urban and rural primary health care centres. The state health department, meanwhile, maintained that three lakh people will get their second dose by the end of May.
The number of private centres administering the vaccine increased from 40 on Tuesday to 151 on Wednesday. Till 9.30 pm 53,908 people took the shot in the state — of them 9,814 from Hyderabad. The total number of first doses was below 10,000 across the state.
