India has decided to stop shipping out anti-COVID vaccines to other countries in the face of intense pressure to inoculate more Indian citizens as the second wave of the pandemic is infecting a record number of people every day.

Multiple sources in the ministry of external affairs (MEA) confirmed that the program has been put on hold for the next one month or until the supply of vaccines for domestic requirements reaches an ‘optimal level’.

As a result, no new shipments are expected to go out in the foreseeable future although shipments would continue for cases that have already been approved and the recipient government has been informed.
