The Union Health Ministry informed on Friday that over 90 lakh COVID-19 vaccine doses are still available with states and union territories. The Centre has so far provided over 17.35 crore vaccine doses to states and UTs free of cost. Out of this, the total consumption is 16,44,77,100 doses.
"More than 90 lakh (90,30,670) COVID-19 vaccine doses are still available with the states and UTs to be administered. States with negative balance are showing more consumption (including wastage) than vaccine supplied as they have not reconciled the vaccine they have supplied to armed forces," the ministry said.
"Furthermore, more than 10 lakh (10,25,000) vaccine doses will be received in addition by the states and UTs within the next three days," it added.
