As many as 80,705 persons were given the vaccine on Thursday, they said.
In 12 districts vaccination centres remained closed on account of Mahashivratri.
'People fast on Mahashivratri. Local officials thought that vaccine dose on empty stomach may have complications, so vaccination was not carried out in some places,' a senior official said.
