New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday suggested that the Centre should procure the COVID-19 vaccine formula from 2 manufacturers and share it with other companies in the country to scale up production of the vaccine.

Kejriwal said there is a shortage of vaccine across the country and there is an urgent need to ramp up its manufacturing on war footing while developing a national policy to inoculate everyone in the next few months.

He said the Centre should ensure that all the vaccine manufacturing plants in the country start producing COVID doses.

The two COVID vaccine manufacturers can be provided royalty for use of their formula by other companies, he added.
