Meanwhile, the ministry also said that a new death was reported in the last 24 hours when a 56-year-old female, a resident of Gurugram, died. "Her post-mortem confirms cardio-pulmonary disease and it is not linked to vaccination," it clarified.

Total number of deaths post vaccination reported till date stands at six. However, none of them are causally linked to vaccination, the ministry claimed.

Besides, the outreach programme to raise awareness about Covid vaccine has been extended to prominent doctors in the states and UTs, who have become part of the Twitter campaign with various hashtags.

"#IgotMyCovidVaccine, #IgotMyShot, #BeatCovid are the hashtags they (doctors) are using to further our awareness campaign on social media," the ministry added.

In addition to 12 states, Covaxain, the vaccine developed by Bharat Biotech, would be administered by seven more states including Chhattisgarh, West Bengal, Punjab, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Kerala and Madhya Pradesh.

"Orientation of all programme managers of these seven states was conducted today by the ICMR and the Union Health Ministry, covering all aspects of implementation protocols," it added.
