In recent developments, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has informed that the COVID-19 vaccination drive is to come to your doorstep in the city.

According to reports, the civic body of Mumbai is allowing housing societies to partner with private hospitals to hold these drives within their premises, subject to the availability of stocks. Moreover, hospitals will have to ensure all protocols are followed during the drive. These vaccines will come at a cost fixed by the government for private hospitals. In addition, several housing societies are trying to set up their infrastructure to ready themselves for the drive.

Speaking about the same, BMC Additional Commissioner Suresh Kakani stated that housing societies, industrial complexes, banks and corporates can tie up with any private hospital for doorstep vaccination.

Meanwhile, the BMC had earlier sent a proposal to the Central Government to allow citizens to get vaccinated near their homes. Informing the same, BMC Additional Commissioner Suresh Kakani asserted that the civic body aims to complete the vaccination drive by May 31. Due to the increasing instances of cases of coronavirus, BMC Commissioner Iqbal Singh Chahal has instructed to conduct one lakh tests for COVID-19 every day.

Speaking about allowing vaccination camps to be set up in housing societies, Kakani added, “The BMC has planned to make arrangements for vaccinations in housing societies. We have sent a letter to the central government seeking their permission. After a nod from the government, we will allow private hospitals to set up centres on the premises of housing societies.” further stating, “Before granting permissions to hospitals, we will check if hospital teams have adequate medical facilities. We will check all aspects.”
