On September 23, the health ministry had informed that people with restricted mobility, special needs will be vaccinated against COVID-19 at home, as the government has cleared the provision. "Those who do not have enough mobility that they can be brought out of their home, or if someone has a disability or some special needs that they can't be brought to the centre… for them we have made the provision of at-home vaccination under supervision," ANI had quoted the ministry. 

India rolled out the world’s largest vaccination drive on January 16 with two homemade vaccines.
