NEW DELHI: Two days after the Centre liberalised the Covid vaccination policy allowing states and private hospitals to procure 50% of all vaccine supplies, Serum Institute of India (SII) said that Covishield would be sold at Rs 400 per dose to states and Rs 600 per dose to private hospitals.
Though not said explicitly, it implies that people who go for vaccinations in private hospitals may have to pay a higher price per dose of Covishield, as Rs 600 per dose being the procurement price, private hospitals may apply additional charges.
