After shutting centres for vaccination of the age group 18-44 years, for nearly two weeks Delhi Govt has restarted the vaccination for the particular group. After receiving received around 1.5 lakh doses of vaccines for this category late last evening.

“We have been sharing that since the past two weeks, the stock of vaccines for those between 18-44 years had been over, because of which all the government centres which were operating in the government schools had been shut.

Today we are very happy to announce that Delhi has received 1.25 lakh doses of Covishield and 20,000 doses of Covaxin.

This means that the second dose for those between 18-44 years who had been administered with Covaxin is now available.

Many such youngsters had been administered the first dose but were not able to find any place to get vaccinated with the second dose. Now Covaxin is available and people can get the second dose,” stated AAP MLA Atishi on Wednesday evening.

Stating that the received vaccine stock for the youth will last eight-day, she said,

“Most importantly, the vaccination which had been shut for the youth has been opened up from today. So, if you log in to the CoWIN app, then the youth of Delhi can get vaccinated for free in the government centres… This is essential for the youth of Delhi because a lot of people have been telling us for the past 2 weeks that they want to get vaccinated but it is not available anywhere. The private hospitals were administering the vaccines at exorbitant costs.”
