Banerjee said considering the gap between doses, the process to vaccinate the entire eligible age group should take six months to a year to complete.
She said her government has spent Rs 150 crore to procure vaccines, but only 1.4 crore of the state’s over 10- crore population could be inoculated so far.
“The Centre is not sending vaccines to states. Whatever little stock that is supplied, gets depleted within days… It must give free vaccines to state governments,” she said.
The central government had on Monday said it expects to inoculate the country’s adult population by the end of the year.
