Patiala, July 25

As many as 10,157 beneficiaries were administered Covid shots by the Health Department during a mega vaccination drive today.

The Health Department said they were happy to surpass the vaccination target of 9,500 for the drive. So far, around 5.8 lakh doses have been administered in the district.

Patiala Civil Surgeon Dr Prince Sodhi said they had been getting a good response from residents and they would be holding another mega drive tomorrow. He said they would only administer Covaxin doses during the drive.

Many vaccination centres witnessed a huge rush. At some centers, the vaccination had to be wound up before the stipulated time due to the exhaustion of the stock. Consequently, beneficiaries had to return home without getting jabbed.

Meanwhile, sources said the expectant mothers were doubtful about getting vaccinated.
