In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has requested that all those above 25 years of age should be allowed to get themselves vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The CM further stated that this will protect the young people from the rapid spread of the infections at a time when they are stepping outside their homes to earn a livelihood. This would eventually help in reducing the number of active patients.

The Chief Minister also thanked PM Modi for accepting his proposal of allowing all persons above 45 years of age to be made eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination, Chief Minister's Office said.

In the letter, Thackeray also demanded that Maharashtra be provided with additional doses of COVID-19 vaccines.

Increase the supply of Vaccination doses for Maharashtra

The centre should provide 1.5 crore additional doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to Maharashtra. We will take three weeks to administer the vaccine to age group above 45 years in six districts of Mumbai, Pune, Thane, Nashik, Aurangabad and Nagpur where the spike of cases is the highest, the letter stated.

With the help of the central government and the efforts of the state governments, it will be possible to overcome this wave of coronavirus infection, he said, adding that the country can be brought back to the new normalcy in a way that prioritises life, livelihood and makes use of science.

On April 3, 4.62 lakh people were vaccinated in Maharashtra where 76.86 lakh people have received the jabs so far.

Stricter restrictions in Maharashtra

In this regard, the Chief Minister said in his letter that Maharashtra is taking concrete steps in order to control the crisis-like situation due to coronavirus. The state has always provided corona-related information in a very transparent manner and has also increased the speed of tests. Moreover, the state government is taking measures with the determination that every patient must be cured. In addition, they have put in place some strict restrictions through the “Break the Chain” campaign.
