Earlier, Modi interacted with healthcare workers and beneficiaries of the Covid vaccination programme in the state through video conferences.

Interacting with Dr Rahul, posted at the Dodra Kwar Civil Hospital in Shimla district, Modi said 10 per cent of the expenditure can be saved if all 11 shots in a single vial are used while administering Covid vaccines.
