We got a little load of 1.5 lakh Covishield antibodies on Monday night… We have at the most around 1.68 lakh immunizations which can’t last past Tuesday or half of Wednesday. We need to close down inoculation communities. We have the capacity to regulate three to four lakh immunization portions a day,” he said.
