Kathmandu: Nepal has received additional 664,560 dose of Pfizer vaccine against covid-19.

According to the Department of Health Services, the vaccines have been kept in the storage room of Teku. The government had made public the schedule of vaccinating children in the age group of 12 to 17 years in 8 districts including Kathmandu Valley and the remaining 12 districts within a few days.

However, officials at the Ministry of Health say that the vaccination campaign has become uncertain due to the delay in the arrival of the syringes used for the vaccine.
