Air India cancels it’s employee vaccine drives this week due to shortage of supplies. This was planned for Tuesday and Thursday at Delhi Airport with hopes of vaccinating the entire staff by the end of May.

Government authorities expressed inability to hold these camps that were set up at the Air India GSD facility at Delhi Airport due to non-availability of vaccines according to Business Standard.

A new date for the vaccine drive hasn’t yet been set by Air India as the country faces a dire vaccine shortage that has seen daily shots decline in recent days.
Since vaccinations are unlikely to begin until next week, Air India’s self imposed deadline of offering shots to all its employees by end of May is at a risk of being missed due to shortages.

According to Simply flying, last week one pilot’s union threatened to stop flying if the airline did not provide vaccination camps to all staff given the critical role airline crews played during the pandemic and the risk they face flying during the second wave.

The demand for vaccines has gone up in India given that she found her self in a devastating second wave. Air India employees are hoping they will be getting the vaccine in the coming weeks as India’s vaccine production is done domestically.
