"We are on path to achieving the target of 50 crore doses by July 31, this is crucial towards meeting our target coverage by end of this year," the senior official said.

New Delhi: The fresh vaccine orders placed by the Centre are at a revised price of Rs 215 for Covishield and Rs 225 for a dose of Covaxin, according to an official source.

“We are on path to achieving the target of 50 crore doses by July 31, this is crucial towards meeting our target coverage by end of this year,” the senior official said. Nearly 40 crore doses of Covid vaccines were administered across the country till 10pm Friday.

While the Centre has indicated an availability of 13.5 crore doses for July, a fresh order of 66 crore doses for government procurement along with an additional advance payment already made by the Centre to reserve 30 crore doses of Biological E’s Covid vaccine are expected to boost supply.

While the Centre was earlier procuring vaccines at Rs 150 per dose, it had indicated that it will revise vaccine prices after the changed procurement plan came into effect from 21 June.
