The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday, May 5, announced that Mumbaikars over 45 years of age will be allowed to get the vaccine today on the spot, without prior registration.

However, the walk-in facility is permitted only for 20 per cent of the centre's capacity, and the remaining have been asked to book their slot on Co-Win.

Moreover, the BMC also urged that those walking in for vaccination should reach the centres only after 12 pm.

These decisions have been taken to contain the overcrowding at the vaccination centres.

“The ones who have booked their slots online may schedule their visit likewise. As specified last night, the ones walking in to get vaccinated may please NOT GO to centres before 12 pm. The list of centres with vaccine details to follow soon” tweeted BMC.

Meanwhile, 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.

In addition, the state social justice department has decided to give preference to all specially-abled people working in government establishments in availing COVID test, treatment and vaccination facility without waiting in the queue.
