Bhubaneswar, Jun 9 (PTI) Odisha on Wednesday postponed

the opening of the price bid of e-global tender for

procurement of COVID-19 vaccines by two more weeks till June

that it will supply all vaccines required by states.

"The Centre is likely to start supply of vaccines to

states from June 21," a senior official said.

The Odisha State Medical Corporation Limited which

floated the global tender and received two bids was scheduled

to open the price bid on Wednesday. However, it is now

rescheduled to June 23, a notification issued by the OSMCL

position of vaccines from the Centre for all age groups which

it has announced,"the official said.

tender to procure 3.8 crore COVID-19 vaccines for inoculating

the people in the age bracket of 18 to 44 years after the
