Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday said the central government will be supplying only 15 lakh Covid vaccine doses for use in the national capital in July, and it will take around 16 more months to inoculate the city’s entire population at this rate.
On June 7, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced that all citizens aged 18 years and above will be vaccinated free of cost from June 21 with the central government distributing doses to states. “I got to know that no free vaccine has been supplied for use beyond June 2,” Sisodia said at a digital press conference. The central government will be supplying only 15 lakh doses in July, he said.
