‘Don’t line up outside centres tomorrow, vaccines to come in 1-2 days’: Kejriwal
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday appealed to people in the 18-44 age group not to queue up outside COVID vaccination centres from May 1, saying Delhi hasn't yet received vaccine doses. In the next one-two days, around 3 lakh Covishield vaccines will be received and the drive for vaccinating people above 18 years will commence, he said during an online briefing. The third phase of the COVID-19 vaccination drive to inoculate people in the 18-44 age group will roll out across the country on May 1. However, Delhi and some other states have said that they would be unable to do so due to the shortage of vaccine doses. Kejriwal said his government has placed orders for 67 lakh doses each of Covishield and Covaxin in three months. Watch the full video for more details.
