On Tuesday, May 4, Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar stressed the importance of getting more and more people vaccinated in order to better equip them to deal with a potential third wave of coronavirus.

Pednekar's comments have come on the day when Mumbai reported its lowest single-day COVID-19 cases since mid-March.

Moreover, Kishori Pednekar thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for launching a vaccination drive for people between 18 to 44 years of age. The mayor also mentioned that the city administration is also giving priority to people aged above 45 at nearly 60 centres in Mumbai.

While speaking to the media, the Mumbai Mayor said, "For the third wave, it's essential to vaccinate more and more people. I thank PM for opening vaccination for people between 18-44 years of age."

"People above 45 years being vaccinated too. Many yet to get their second dose. They are being given priority at our 59 centres," she added.

Earlier, when asked whether the lockdown-like restrictions will impact the vaccination drive, the mayor explained, “Since the restrictions are being done online and confirmation is being sent to the beneficiaries, it would not hamper the COVID-related norms. Hence, the vaccination can take place smoothly like before.”
