On March 23, the Serum Institute sought permission to export a dose of 5 million covshields to Britain. According to the company, they have to do this because they have a contract with AstraZeneca. However, this will not cause any problem in the anti-coronary immunization process in the country.
Meanwhile, the Center has sent a message to the state governments following the new decision on Covishield vaccination. Contact the company quickly and ask them to start vaccinating people of a certain age.
