Adequate amount of vaccine will be available from August onwards: Amitabh Kant

Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog today said that the second wave has been more catastrophic than the first one and it overwhelmed the health system for a while.

Addressing the virtual ‘Interactive session on Saving Lives and Livelihood’, organized by FICCI, jointly with OYO, Mr Kant applauded the role of the private sector in the overall vaccination drive. “There may be a slight demand-supply imbalance in vaccination during June-July but from August onwards there will be an adequate amount of vaccines available.
