“It has been observed that whenever Delhi has enough vaccine supply for the 18-44 age group the vaccination process speeds up, and when the vaccine stocks start diminishing the speed of the vaccination process also slows down rapidly,” she added. 

Further Atishi said, “Delhi received one installment of 1,67,320 Covishield doses yesterday for the 18-44 age group. So now Delhi has 2,95,000 vaccine doses available for the 18-44 age group, out of which, there is 37,000 Covaxin doses which will last for 2 days and, 2,58,000 Covishield doses that will last for 14 days.

Asking people to get the COVID-19 jab, Atishi said, “The youth of Delhi must come forward and book their vaccination slots through the CoWin application. While they are stepping out to get their vaccine jab they should also take along any family member who is of age 45 and above and hasn’t been vaccinated till now for their vaccination as well.”

“For now the most important step to save Delhi from the next possible Covid-19 wave is vaccination. Currently, Delhi has the vaccine stock available and therefore everybody must step forward and get themselves vaccinated at the earliest possibility.” she stated.
