New cases in Chennai were at 198 (206) while Coimbatore reported 218 (211) cases.

On Tuesday, 44,559 vaccinations were administered across the State. The low number was due to shortage of vaccines as the State was awaiting supply of the vaccine from the Centre after exhausting over 16 lakh vaccines on Sunday's special vaccination camp.

On Monday, the State received 1.75 lakh doses of Covaxin, according to the State Health Department.
