Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday urged state officials to ensure minimal wastage of Covid-19 vaccines as the country reels under a shortage of doses.
“There is an issue of vaccine wastage. Wasting even a single dose means not being able to give a shield to a life. It is important to stop vaccine wastage,” said the PM during his interaction with field officials and district magistrates from 10 states.
Modi is presiding over a meeting with officials from Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Kerala, Maharashtra, Odisha, Puducherry, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh to review the Covid-19 situation.
PM Modi had earlier this week held a meeting with officials from Karnataka, Bihar, Assam, Chandigarh, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Goa, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi.
