BMC Commences A Distinctive Vaccination Drive At Aarey

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) commenced a unique vaccination drive for people residing in the tribal padas of Aarey colony, cite reports. The reach of the coronavirus vaccines in the said area has been below par due to accessibility issues.

Mumbai suburban guardian minister Aaditya Thackeray inaugurated Khambacha Pada’s vaccination centre. The BMC states, according to reports, that on Monday, 1,997 individuals were vaccinated, in Aarey’s Khambacha pada.

Authorities have also mentioned that ancillary schemes are being undertaken to see to it that a large part of the city’s population is vaccinated. Goregaon’s Aarey colony has accessibility issues, state authorities, with people unable to reach centres or having inadequate access to connectivity to book slots. The additional municipal commissioner, state narratives, said that 8,000-10,000 people in Aarey and areas in Sanjay Gandhi National Park may be unvaccinated.
