Why Start With 'Pomp And Splendour' If...: Court On Delhi Covaxin Supply

The incubation period between the 1st jab and the 2nd jab of Covaxin is 6 weeks

New Delhi:

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday said if the Delhi government could not ensure that people will get both the doses of Covaxin within the stipulated time, then it should not have started so many vaccination centres with "much pomp and splendour".

Justice Rekha Palli issued notice to the Delhi government and sought its stand on whether it can provide the second dose of Covaxin to those who got the first jab, before expiry of the incubation period of six weeks between the two doses.

The court also issued notice to the Centre on two pleas to make the second dose of both vaccines - Covaxin and Covishield - available in the national capital.
