Sanjay Kumar, Chief Strategy and Revenue Officer, IndiGo said, “Being the largest airline in the country, we feel it is our responsibility to contribute to the national vaccination drive, by encouraging more people towards this common goal.” During April and May, India had been badly hit by the coronavirus infection’s second wave, which is receding currently. Several states have been complaining about the COVID-19 vaccine shortage for the last couple of months.
The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said on Tuesday that more than 2.14 crore COVID-19 vaccine doses are still available with the states and union territories and over 33,80,590 vaccine doses are in the pipeline and will be received by them within the next three days.
