Kerala had to halt vaccination as many of its districts, including Thiruvananthapuram, are running dry of vaccines, state Health Minister Veena George had stated yesterday. “We have zero vaccine stocks now. It seems there won’t be vaccination drive in the state for next few days,” she said. Thiruvanathapuram, Kollam, Pathanamthitta, and Alappuzha do not have any Covishield vaccine doses. Fresh vaccine batches are not expected to reach Kerala before July 29. Assuring that the rate of vaccination in the state is beyond 100%, the minister said, “There is zero wastage… We request the Center to give us more vaccines”.
