"There were 51 minor incidents but all persons were allowed to go after a few hours of medical observation, except one patient who was a bit serious and admitted in AIIMS, " Jain added.

He was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit till Saturday night but was stable.  The Minister said that the healthcare workers of Delhi Municipal Corporations (MCDs) were not listed for vaccination on the first day of the drive because of their ongoing protest.
