Vaccination will be complete by end of this year says central government

The central government told the Supreme Court on Monday that it hoped everyone in the country would be vaccinated by the end of this year. 
The government, which has been facing constant criticism over its vaccination policy and different prices for vaccines, told the court that by the end of 2021, the entire population of the country is expected to be vaccinated against Kovid-19. The government's vaccine policy has been criticized for different prices, vaccine shortages and slow rollouts.

Why only 50 per cent supply for 18-44 year olds?

The apex court hearing the issue asked, "Why is the Center finally giving 100 per cent vaccine to the states for people above the age of 45, but only 50 per cent for the 18-44 age group?" The court asked, "The central government is buying vaccines exclusively for the population above 45, but the procurement for the 18-44 age group is divided. With 50 per cent of the vaccine available to the states from vaccine manufacturers, the prices are being fixed by the Center and the rest are being given to private hospitals, what is the basis for this?

Also criticizes the government's digital vaccination

3 judges of the Supreme Court - Justice D.Y. Chandrachud, L.N. Rao and S. Ravindra Bhat's bench asked the government that. "Your argument was that mortality is higher in people over the age of 45, but in the second wave, people in this age group are not at high risk, people in the age group of 18-44 are in greater danger. Now if the goal is to buy vaccines, why is the government buying vaccines for people over 45? ” The court also criticized the government's digital vaccination, saying that the digital distribution of the inevitability of registration on the Covin platform for vaccination would affect vaccination efforts in the villages, as the internet is not so convenient there.

Will everyone in the villages be able to register themselves on Covin?

The court asked, "Everyone has to register on the Covin app, but because of the digital distribution, can it really be expected that everyone in the villages will be able to register on the Covin themselves?" "People in villages can go to computer centers to register and get vaccinated," the Center said. Is this a very practical solution, the court said? The court also said that migrant workers traveling from one state to another for work do not know how helpful this method would be.
