The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has been taking strict measures to curb the spread of coronavirus and with an aim to expedite the process, the civic body has decided to set up three new vaccination centers in Worli. 

As per reports, these vaccination centers will be set up near Prabhadevi, Worli Koliwada and Lower Parel railway stations, in South Mumbai. Two of these vaccination centers will be operational within a week. Currently, there are three vaccination centers in the southern part of the city, of which two are government-run and one is being operated in a private hospital. 

It is said that approximately 1500 to 2000 citizens are being vaccinated daily from these centres and free vaccination is being given at the immunization centers at Podar Medical College and ESIS Hospital. Both these vaccination centers are near Worli Naka. 

Meanwhile, there is a vaccination center at SRCC Children's Hospital near Haji Ali, which is said to be far away for the citizens from Lower Parel and Prabhadevi areas. Keeping this in mind, the municipality has decided to start vaccination centers in the two localities.

The BMC will make these centres functional at Prabhadevi Maternity Hospital and Worli Koliwada Hospital. The third vaccination center will be set up at the railway hospital near Lower Parel station and will be run by railways.

COVID-19 cases in the city and other districts are on a rise and the state government is taking necessary measures to contain the spread. CM Uddhav Thackeray addressed the state on April 13, 2021, and imposed Sec 144 across Maharashtra, from April 14 to May 1, 2021. This will be implemented from 7am to 8pm, whereby only essential services will be allowed. Public parks, malls, cinema houses and other activities will remain closed. He appealed to the citizens to cooperate at this house and support the government in fighting the crisis.
