Maharashtra government will provide free COVID vaccination to all above 18 years of age, announced State Minority Affairs Minister Nawab Malik on Sunday.
With this decision, Maharashtra has joined the list of states like Assam, Madhya Pradesh, and others who have also pledged to inoculate their citizens free of cost.
The vaccination drive for all adults will begin from May 1 while the registration process will start from April 28. The appointments can be made on the COWIN portal and Aarogya Setu app.
Also NCP national spokesman, Mr Malik thanked the Centre for increasing the state’s daily quota of Remdesivir from 26,000 to 40,000.
This will reduce the scarcity to some extent. However, there is a demand for a daily supply of 50,000 injections in the state, he added.
