The central government will provide free coronavirus vaccines to states for inoculation of all above the age of 18 from June 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Monday and asserted that vaccine supply would be increased significantly in the country in the coming days.
The Centre has decided to buy 75 per cent of jabs from vaccine makers, including 25 per cent of the state quota, and give it for free to state governments, the prime minister said in an address to the nation.
Private sector hospitals can continue to procure 25 per cent of vaccines, but their service charge would be capped at Rs 150 per dose over a fixed price of the vaccine, Modi said.
