Besides, terming the low coronavirus vaccination coverage among the healthcare and frontline workers, especially for the second dose, a cause of "serious concern", the Centre advised the states and Union territories to sharpen their focus and prepare effective plans for expediting the second dose coverage among these priority groups.

On the other hand, 2.15 crore doses have been given out so far in Uttar Pradesh whereas Gujarat has administered 1.91 crore vaccines so far. In Rajasthan, 1.84 doses of the vaccine have been administered.
