Rohtak, July 26

The shortage of anti-Covid vaccines persists at the PGIMS owing to gaps in the supply of Covaxin and Covishield jabs.

Residents who have got the first dose of vaccine, especially Covaxin, have been making rounds of the PGIMS to get the second dose, but they are sent back due to its unavailability.

Sources at the PGIMS concede that it is rare that adequate doses of Covaxin and Covishield are available at the anti-Covid vaccination centre set up on the premises of the institute.

“Today, we got 300 doses of Covaxin, but none of Covishield,” said a healthcare staffer engaged in the anti-Covid vaccination drive at the PGIMS.

Rohtak Civil Surgeon Dr Anil Birla said 3,000 doses of Covishield had been received today and 15,000 more doses were expected to arrive tomorrow. — TNS
