Ludhiana, April 21
Amid the shortage of Covishield vaccine, a number of beneficiaries are forced to wait for the second jab. Vaccine stock was not provided to private hospitals even on the fifth day.
Currently, the Covishield vaccine was being administered at only four government vaccination centres in urban areas of Ludhiana. On Wednesday, District Immunisation Officer Puneet Juneja said at present, the Covishield stock was almost nil.
He said the fresh stock of Covishield had not reached Ludhiana today. However, the vaccine stock was likely to reach here by Thursday evening.
“There is no information that how much fresh stock will be delivered here. After the arrival of the stock, it will be distributed accordingly,” Dr Juneja said.
