A total of 75,627 people were administered vaccine against COVID-19 in Maharashtra's Raigad district in three days from Friday under a special vaccination drive undertaken by the state government, an official said on Tuesday.

As part of the 'Mission Kawach Kundal', 37,630 people were inoculated at a primary health centre of the Raigad zilla parishad, 21,692 at a hospital of the Panvel Municipal Corporation, 12,764 at district civil hospital and 3,541 at private vaccination centres in the district, Raigad zilla parishad CEO Dr Karan Patil said in a release.
