The decision comes at a time when the Center had announced two days ago that it would supply all the vaccines required by the states.
A senior official said, “The Center is likely to start supplying vaccines to the states from June 21.”
Odisha State Medical Corporation Limited (OSMCL), in a notification, said it had floated a global tender and had received two bids. It was supposed to open the price bid on Wednesday, but will now be opened on June 23.
“The state will take a further decision on the supply of vaccines from the Center for all age groups,” the official said.
