it is a pretty badly kept secret that ineligible people are indeed getting vaccines. a friend from ambala told me that they have a local camp which is vaccinating everyone. and this is also the reason they stopped vaccination of frontline workers. no one was verifying. i saw four under 30 people vaccinating at my local center when i went with mom. no documents were checked. nothing.

Despite state governments pre-populating data of health and frontline workers – who were prioritized for Covid vaccination in the first round itself – there has been 24% increase in healthcare workers’ database in the past few days, health secretary Rajesh Bhushan has pointed out in a letter to states on Saturday.

so because of their own incompetence, healthcare workers are now ineligible to get vaccines.

How is it simple? Won’t it make worse the presumed shortage of vaccines? That’s obviously the reason it’s called a deferred vaccination schedule. Some people blame the women and children first policy adopted on the Titanic. The thing is it was indeed the right choice, except it was implemented horribly due to lack of training and of course, natural human panic.
In India, pertaining to this situation, there’s clearly no panic or lack of training. Just unscrupulous morals of the public overall. Sab chalta hai attitude.

The UK's Health Regulator has today recommended healthy people under 30 shouldn't be given the Oxford AZ vaccine since the risk of getting blood clots is higher than the benefit of the vaccine for them.

7 lakh or 1.4cr
I am confused.

Edit: 92 lakh doses has been already given to people in Maharashtra as per cowin site. This 7 lakh number I guess in pipeline (from prakash javdekar tweet).

Idk how tax they pay is related to the no of doses they get, also population wise comparison is selective.

There could be a shortage but stupid tweets with misinformation is not going to help. Looks very politically motivated.
