Several states take global tender route to get Covid vaccines

May 12, 2021 07:32 IST | By Editorji News Desk

A number of states are taking the global tender route to procure Covid-19 vaccines as domestic supply remains sluggish.

Delhi, UP, Maharashtra, Odisha and a bunch of southern states, including Karnataka, Andhra and Telangana, have chosen the direct import option to give fillip to their vaccination drives.

The Centre says it's so far provided over 18 crore doses to states and Union Territories for free. They will receive 7,29,610 additional doses in the next three days, PTI hasd reported.

Uttar Pradesh has already started the process to procure 4 crore doses of Sputnik V, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Karnataka govt has said that it will procure two crore doses to vaccinate those in the age group of 18-44 years.

Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Tuesday alleged that the BJP govt at the Centre was "forcing" the state governments to invite global tenders for vaccines.
