In a bid to achieve at least first-dose vaccination of as many eligible people as possible before the end of this calendar year, the central government had launched a mega vaccination camp called ‘Har Ghar Dastak’ from Dhanteras.

For the mega vaccination, about 48 districts were identified across India where the first dose coverage among the eligible populace was below 50 per cent.

The cumulative number of doses administered in the country so far under the nationwide COVID-19 vaccination drive has exceeded 140.31 crore.
