West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee dubbed as "hoax" the Centre's claim that it will fully vaccinate all its citizens above 18 years of age by December, reported NDTV.

The Supreme Court said that the Centre's policy to provide free vaccination for priority groups and replacing it with a paid process for those in the 18-45 age group was "prima facie arbitrary and irrational".
