Ground Report | New Delhi: The central government has expressed hope that by mid-July or August, the supply of vaccine in the country will increase in India, after which 10 million people will be vaccinated daily. NK Arora, chairman of the Task Force on covid-19 Vaccination, has said that by August, ‘Made in India’ i.e. about 250 million vaccines made in the country will be available.
Dr. Arora said, “Serum Institute of India has stated in a letter that by the end of June they will make 10-12 million vaccines, which will be 50% more than their capacity.” Similarly, the capacity for production of co vaccine will also increase and by the end of July, they will be able to prepare 10-12 crore vaccines per month. In addition to this, vaccines of Sputnik V, Fishers and Moderna may also be available from other vaccine manufacturers or abroad.
Improved supply of vaccines
Dr. Arora said, “By August we will have 20-25 crore doses every month. Our goal will be to get one crore people vaccinated every month.” He also told that in the next few weeks, it will also be investigated whether people can be given different doses of vaccines. In this, it will be found out that if people are vaccinated from another company in the second dose of the vaccine, then what effect does it have on the ability to fight the virus.
