Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar on Sunday, April 25, said that although BMC is not planning to conduct door-to-door vaccination, it is planning to place a few mobile vans at various places in Mumbai in the third phase of vaccination.

She further stated that the registration for vaccination for everyone above 18 will be done via the Co-Win app only. “There will be no walk-ins allowed at the vaccination centre for those between 18-45 years of age. Hence, everyone's cooperation is needed. We are doing all the vaccinations as per instructions given by the centre.”

Moreover, she added that the civic body is making all efforts to provide 1 lakh vaccines per day in Mumbai.

Talking about the stock of vaccines and Remdesivir, Pednekar said, "We have enough doses of Covaxin in our hospitals. We expect delivery of more doses of Covishield in a day or two. Today we have a good stock of Remdesivir."

Meanwhile, Kishori Pednekar also mentioned that discussions are underway between the Chief Minister and Prime Minister Narendra Modi so that there will be no shortage of vaccines henceforth in the state.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi provided a large stock of vaccines. I thank him,” added Kishori Pednekar.

The mayor has also requested the citizens to avoid overcrowding at certain places. The decisions taken by the state government are in the interest of all. “There is no need to panic, there is sufficient vaccination for everyone. We will make sure no one is deprived of vaccination.”
