Twenty thousand doses of the coronavirus vaccine, Covaxin, made by Bharat Biotech have been stored at the Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital in Delhi, officials said on Wednesday. The storage has been made ahead of the vaccination rollout which is going to begin from January 16 across India.
The first batch of Oxford Covishield vaccine containing 2.64 lakh doses reached the Delhi's central storage facility at RGSSH on Tuesday amid high security, officials earlier said.
"We also received 20,000 doses of Bharat Biotech-made Covaxin yesterday. Both the vaccines are stored in the ground floor of the utility building on our premises, earmarked for the central storage in temperate-controlled environment," news agency PTI quoted a senior official said.
