“We have vaccinated more than one lakh beneficiaries on Saturday and are expecting a similar footfall next week,” said additional municipal commissioner and in-charge of public health Suresh Kakani.

"We are carrying out vaccination in full force to make sure maximum number of beneficiaries are inoculated. However, the issue of stocks getting over is still of concern," he said.
