Mumbai Corona Vaccination: After a break of three days, vaccination will be done again today at all the vaccination centers in Mumbai. Mumbai received 85,000 doses of the vaccine late Saturday night. This dose is enough for Monday. However, even now Mumbai has only two days left for Monday and Tuesday. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is hopeful that the vaccine will be received by the Center on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday, after which the vaccination campaign will not have to be stopped for any day. However, the central government has said that the states still have about 1 crore 44 lakh vaccines left.
Hope to get more vaccine
Today, from 9 am to 5 pm, people will be vaccinated at all centers in Mumbai. Suresh Kakani, Additional Municipal Commissioner of Public Health Department in BMC said that on Saturday night we received 84 thousand doses of the vaccine. This is enough for two days but how many people come to the center is yet to be seen. That’s why we hope that on Monday and Tuesday night we will continue to get the vaccine dose.
283 BMC Vaccine Centers in Mumbai
He said that the vaccine can be given to 1.5 lakh people daily in Mumbai. That’s why we have demanded a dose from the government for the vaccine to one lakh people. Since the state government is not getting enough vaccine doses from the Centre, it is getting its share only on stock basis. There are 401 vaccination centers in Mumbai. Of these, 283 are centers of BMC. Apart from this, there are centers of 83 private hospitals. At these centers, 50 percent of the people are being given the dose of vaccine through appointment and 50 percent of the people coming directly to the center.
1.44 crore vaccines available with states
The Union Health Ministry said on Sunday that states, union territories and private hospitals have more than 1.44 crore vaccines for corona. He said that so far more than 38.60 crore vaccines have been provided to the states and union territories from all sources and 11 lakh 25 thousand 140 vaccines are to be given. According to the data received till eight o’clock in the morning, a total of 37 crore 16 lakh 47 thousand 625 vaccines including the wasted vaccine have been consumed. The new phase of Kovid-19 vaccination started from 21 June.
