Delhi on Saturday received a fresh stock of 1,67,000 Covishield vaccine doses for people in the 18-44 age group, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Atishi said in a statement.
With this new stock, the national capital's Covid vaccine stock has gone up to 2,95,000 for the 18-45 age group as of June 19, she added.
Besides, Delhi has also received 37,000 doses of indigenous vaccine Covaxin on Saturday.
"We have seen that the speed of the vaccination drive goes up with the availability of vaccines for the 18-44 age group, and goes down as soon as they are on the verge of running out of stock. Here, we are happy to share that Delhi on Friday received 1,67,000 Covishield doses for the age group," said Atishi.
Urging more youngsters to get vaccinated, Atishi said the present stock of Covishield and Covaxin doses would last for 14 and two days, respectively.
