On account of limited supply of Covid vaccine, the Delhi government had on Thursday issued an order reserving Covishield shots only for beneficiaries whose second dose is due, across all its vaccination centres till July 31.

Notably, the government has also put a “20 per cent cap” on Covaxin due to its limited stock and irregular delivery cycles. Both Covishield and Covaxin vaccines are administered at the Covid vaccination centres (CVCs) run by the city government. Delhi’s current vaccination capacity stands at 90,797 doses per day, the data said.
