The News Cover: Criticism started from various sections of the society after seeing the high price of Coronavirus Vaccine in the states. There were also questions as to why the state had to buy the vaccine at more than double the price of the central government. In this situation, the central government asked the Serum Institute and Bharat Biotech to reduce the price of the vaccine. Such a claim has been made on behalf of the news agency PTI.

The central government is buying each dose of Covishield vaccine from the Serum Institute for Rs 150. But the state government has to buy that vaccine for 400 rupees. And private hospitals will have to buy each dose of Covishield vaccine at Rs 600.

The high price of covaxin has also surpassed Covishield. State governments have to pay Rs 600 to buy a dose of covaxin, says India Biotech. And in case of private hospital the price will be 1200 rupees.

Several states have already said they will vaccinate the general public free of charge. But the question is where the huge amount of money will come from to buy the vaccine at such a high price. Doubts have also been raised as to whether it will be possible for the general public to go there and get the vaccine at a higher price if the private hospitals buy the vaccine at such a high price. As a result, questions are being raised about the success of the goal of vaccinating everyone over the age of 18.

As pressure mounted, the government eventually asked both companies to reduce vaccine prices. Now let's see what the two companies do.

From May 1, everyone over the age of 18 will get the vaccine. However, those between the ages of 18 and 44 must register online to receive the vaccine. Free vaccinations for people over 45 at government hospitals or vaccination centers will continue. But this service will no longer be available in private hospitals. After May 1, the vaccine recipient will have to bear the cost of vaccinating at a private hospital.
