The Nepalese government has made plans to provide second dose vero cell vaccination to those who have been administered first dose in Kathmandu valley. The second dose will be given from 16 May 2021 onwards. The vaccine will be made available to those between 15-59 years of age and will be administered in different areas in Kathmandu valley.
