Mumbai welcomes 1st drive-in vaccination facility

In a first, a drive-in vaccination facility was set up at Mumbai's BMC centre in Dadar.

The Kohinoor public parking of the centre was converted into a vaccination centre, wherein people can sit in their cars and get inoculated.

Shiv Sena leader Rahul Shewale said, "Similar facilities will be set up at other multipurpose parking sites by BMC." Inspired by drive-in COVID testing, this facility is far more convenient for people as there is no fear of maintaining social distancing.
