CM ASKS CENTRE FOR 40 LAKH VACCINE DOSES TO INOCULATE STATE’S ELIGIBLE POPULATION


Chandigarh,(Gurpreet) : Citing a current demand of more than 2 lakh Covid vaccine doses for the second dose alone, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday demanded 40 lakh more doses from the Centre on urgent basis to inoculate the state’s eligible population.

The state was expecting 2.46 lakhs vaccines to arrive today but the Chief Minister, during a Covid review virtual meeting, noted that vaccine remains in short supply, having run out of Covishield vaccine and left with a mere 3500 Covaxin doses as of Monday.
