KATHMANDU, Feb 1: Amid reports that some 2.4 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines procured by the government are unaccounted for, the Ministry of Health and Population has instructed its subordinate bodies to send the details of vaccines administered to eligible citizens across the country. 

Monday's meeting of the committee formed to investigate the missing COVID-19 vaccine directed the Management Division of the Department of Health Service, Health Supply Management centers of all the seven provinces, 77 district health offices and 753 local levels to send details of vaccine stock and vaccinated persons, said the Committee Coordinator Dr Gunaraj Lohani.

The committee has directed the bodies concerned to provide details of all the vaccines by 4 PM on February 4. The MoHP formed a five-member probe committee on Sunday under the coordination of Dr Lohani, the ministry's chief expert, after a significant number of vaccines were found unaccounted for.
