“Furthermor­e, owing to the complexity, and urgency of the situation it is challengin­g to supply it independen­tly to each corporate entity,” it said in a statement. “We would urge all corporate and private individual­s to access the vaccines through the state facilitate­d machinery and private health systems.”
