Even with limited COVID-19 vaccination stock, as per the announcement made by the Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackery, the vaccination process for the citizens between the age group 18-44 years have been initiated across the state in 26 districts from May 1.

According to sources, a total of 132 immunization sessions were conducted in 26 districts of the state for vaccination of citizens in the age group of 18-44 years. Accordingly, a total of 11,492 beneficiaries were vaccinated till 6 pm, the state health department informed.

At present, the state has procured three lakh doses of Covishield vaccine for the age group of 18 to 44 years. Accordingly, vaccination will be started in the remaining districts from May 2. In addition, vaccination is also being carried out at five centres in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, on the eve of Maharashtra Day, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray interacted with the people of the state through social media. Ahead of the phase three vaccination, CM Thackeray also appealed to the people not crowd at vaccination centres. "We are fully prepared to vaccinate people in the age group of 18-45 years. Initially, there will be some problems. Do not crowd. Please don't make vaccination centres COVID-19 hotspots," he said.

Furthermore, he informed that the decision to impose lockdown-like restrictions in Maharashtra has helped in breaking the chain of the coronavirus transmission and the cases are now stabilising adding that Maharashtra would have seen nine to ten lakh active coronavirus cases if the state government had not imposed the fresh lockdown-like restrictions. A complete lockdown may be necessary but "I don't think we will reach that stage," he said in conclusion.
