Civic officials said that earlier more than one lakh beneficiaries were vaccinated regularly however, due to the rains the numbers have dropped in the ongoing week.

"We are vaccinating aggressively and more than 400 centres are operational at present. In the first three days on next week, we expect more footfall as walk ins will be allowed," said an official.
