The vaccination for citizens above the age of 45 years, who are to receive their second dose only, has been resumed in Mumbai at select municipal and government vaccination centres on Tuesday, May 4, after being suspended for three days since Saturday due to shortage in stock.

Meanwhile, Mumbai’s first-of-its-kind drive-in vaccination centre has been started at Kohinoor Parking Lot near Shivaji Park in Dadar (West) from today, 10 am onwards, to cater to senior citizens and specially-abled citizens.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)’s G/North ward has launched a new vaccination centre at Kohinoor Parking Lot, JK Sawant Marg, Dadar(W), for 45+ citizens coming for their 2nd dose of Covishield. This centre has seven vaccination rooms.

Moreover, Mumbaikars and frontline health workers, who have the second dose lined up, can walk into any of the 60 centres designated by the BMC.

No prior appointment will be required for all those who will go for the second dose. Walk-in facility will be allowed, but people will need to carry the certificate of the first dose of vaccination or the SMS, informed BMC.

In addition, the civic body also shared a list of COVID-19 centres where one can walk-in and take the second dose of the vaccine. The officials mentioned that others will still have to take the vaccine as per the slot allotted to them.

Besides, vaccination for the age group 18-44 years will continue on Tuesday as well, for the fourth day since the drive started on May 1. It will take place at five vaccine centres for the beneficiaries who have registered on the CoWin application and have received a slot from BMC. It will take place at BYL Nair Hospital at Mumbai Central, SevenHills Hospital at Andheri, BKC Jumbo Facility, Rajawadi Hospital at Ghatkopar, and Cooper Hospital at Vile Parle. BMC aims to vaccinate 2,500 people in this age group.

Slots for bookings were opened by the civic body on Monday evening at 7.30 pm and all slots were booked within seven minutes. At 7.37pm, BMC tweeted, “All the 500 slots each at all the 5 centres have been booked in Mumbai. We look forward to vaccinating those who have booked their slots. Please carry the ID with which you registered.”
