Moderna Has Refused To Directly Sell Its Vaccine To Punjab Government

US pharmaceutical Giant firm Moderna which is among the leading company in producing vaccine has refused to directly supply its COVID-19 vaccines to Punjab, stating that as per its policy it will only deal with the central government. Reportedly, the Punjab government had approached Sputnik V, Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson on direction of CM Captain Amarinder Singh. Only Moderna has responded to Punjab government as of now.

Due to rise in the case in state the punjab government is thinking of boosting the vaccination process in state so they have approached to the companies to provide them vaccine directly without any central government interference.
