Washington: A group of Indian-American doctors on Friday called on the Biden administration to release at least 30 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine in India in the face of a second wave of COD-19. The American Association of Indian Origin (API), the largest organization representing American Indian-American doctors, also wrote a letter to all 100 senators, asking for their help in increasing support for India.
The AAPI said it was working with White House officials and called for emergency vaccines to be sent to India to help prevent the spread of the virus there. Dr Sampath Shibangi, president of the agency’s legal unit, said: “India is currently facing a severe shortage of Covid-19 vaccine.
