partly true



Maharashtra is halting the COVID-19 vaccination drive due to a lack of vaccine availability.

Some districts in Maharashtra have halted inoculation drive due to vaccine shortage, but not the entire state.

Some districts in Maharashtra have halted inoculation drive due to vaccine shortage, but not the entire state.Maharashtra is one of the worst-hit states by COVID-19 in India with the recent surge in the number of infections. The state has been inoculating between 3.5 lakh and 4 lakh people daily and has vaccinated around 85.6 lakh people till April 6, 2021. However, there is a concern about the shortage of vaccines as the current stock is expected to last only three days.

As per the data given by the Maharastra Health Minister and Navi Mumbai Corporation commissioner, routine immunization has been suspended in the districts of Sangli, Panvel, and Satara. Navi Mumbai, Thane, Nashik would also stop administering the vaccine dose from April 9. In Mumbai, several vaccination centers have stopped the inoculation process, while others may have to halt within a couple of days.

However, the Union Health Ministry has said that there is no shortage of vaccines and has assured the state of enough supply and allocated 17.43 lakh additional doses to Maharashtra. We mark the claim as Partly True as the shortage exists only in some districts and the inoculation drive has not been severely affected in the entire state.
