Tamil Nadu Health Minister C.Vijayabaskar on Saturday said the state has received four lakh doses of Covid-19 vaccine.

He said the state has received two lakh doses each of Covaxin and Covishield vaccines.

Vijayabaskar said the vaccines will be sent to district centres for further dispersion.

There have been complaints of vaccine shortage with people wanting to get the jab being turned away.

On Friday, Chief Minister K. Palaniswami requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi for an assured supply of at least 10 days’ Covid-19 vaccine stock of about 20 lakh doses in advance to ensure that the vaccination drive in the individual sites is not affected and the people coming for the second jab get them on the due date.
