Besides this, the NMMC is also taking necessary steps to ensure enough stock of vaccines is made available in the municipal areas which can help in vaccinating a large number of citizens. The global tender was also issued recently to purchase the COVID-19 vaccine and the planning across the locality is being monitored by the officials to ensure smooth operations. 

Moreover, keeping the third COVID-19 wave warnings in mind, the department has also started making preparations to manage the cases during an emergency. Healthcare facilities, medications and other aspects are being ramped up to tackle the crisis which is predicted in the next few months. Experts from the central government have informed that the third wave of coronavirus infection is likely to affect children until the age of 18 and understanding the concerns, the state government and civic bodies are consulting with paediatricians to prepare for the same.
