The eligible people can get the booster shot, which currently costs Rs 250 plus service charges, free of cost at any government hospital or dispensary, the statement said.

It said there are about 1.2 crore such beneficiaries in Haryana and the total cost of about Rs 300 crore on their booster doses will be borne by the state from the COVID Relief Fund.

The chief minister said that in addition to vaccination, adhering to COVID-19 guidelines is the biggest tool in the fight against the pandemic.
