The government has lifted the time restriction on receiving COVID-19 vaccine jabs so as to increase the pace of immunization, Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan said on Wednesday.

Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan told a press conference on Tuesday that the timeline of vaccinating the beneficiaries from 9 am to 5 pm has been done away with and it is up to the hospitals to decide whether they want to continue administering the vaccines even after that.
