“Along with the first dose of Covishield, they will also provide the second dose of Covaxin with the leftovers of about 5,000 doses in stock. We were facing a shortage of vaccines, but, now, we’ve received over 40,000 doses from the state and will use them for running the drive on Monday. We’ve demanded more vaccine doses from the state and we’re expecting to get them by next week,” Dr Gupta said.
