In view of the increasing demand for Corona vaccine in the country and low availability of vaccine, the Central Government has taken a major decision. 5 million doses of covi-shield shipped to Britain will now be used in India. The central government will give these doses to 21 states and union territories of the country.
These doses of the vaccine will vaccinate people aged 18–44. Let us know that on 23 March, the Serum Institute wrote a letter to the Ministry of Health and sought approval to supply 50 million doses of covi-shield to Britain.
Some states have been allocated three and a half lakh doses. At the same time, some states have received one lakh each and some states have received 50,000-50,000 doses. These vaccines are labeled covid-19 vaccine AstraZeneca rather than covi-shield. Let us know that more than four lakh cases are coming up daily in India for a few days.
