Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said said the Delhi government has spoken to Pfizer, Moderna for COVID-19 vaccines, and both the companies have refused to sell vaccines directly and will deal with the Government of India alone.
He appealed to the Centre to import vaccines and distribute them to the states.
“We have talked to people from Pfizer, they say that they will communicate with the Centre directly, we talked to Moderna, they said that they will not talk to us but to the Centre directly,” Kejriwal told reporters.
“It is my earnest request to the Central government that our country has lost a lot of time already, it has been a long time and we should not waste anymore. Now there are a lot of vaccines in the International market – there is Johnson and Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer, and many more. The central government should talk to them and import and distribute among the states,” he said.
