Bengaluru: Vaccination in Karnataka for people above 18 years of age will be delayed as the vaccine has not been supplied yet, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said on Friday.
He was reacting to the Centre’s directive on allowing vaccinating people above 18 years from May 1.
“Our Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar has said clearly that the vaccine has not been supplied yet. We will vaccinate people once it arrives,” the Chief Minister told reporters on the sidelines of a function.
He dismissed charges that it was a failure on the part of the government for not getting the vaccine beforehand.
“Where is the question of failure? We had thought we would get the vaccine (on time) but there is a delay in the supply,” Yediyurappa said.
