More than one crore COVID-19 vaccine doses (1,04,30,063) are still available with the States/UTs to be administered, said the Union Health Ministry in a release issued on Monday.

It added that States with negative balance are showing more consumption (including wastage) than vaccine supplied as they have not reconciled the vaccine they have supplied to Armed Forces.
