Concerned about why vaccines are in such short supply, says Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw – Mumbai Mirror

Executive Chairperson of Biocon Kiran Mazumdar Shaw on Tuesday expressed concern about vaccine shortage.

Her remark comes amid vaccine shortage hitting several states with many people being turned away due to unavailability of doses.

“Very concerned about why vaccines are in such short supply,” said Kiran Mazumdar Shaw in a Tweet.

Tagging the official handle of the Health Ministry, she asked, “Can we please know where the 70 million doses are being deployed every month?”

Further stating that we need better transparency to avoid the suspense, she added, ” If a timetable of supplies is made public people can patiently wait their turn.”
