Mumbai citizens ALERT! BMC door-to-door Covid-19 Vaccination drive is here - Know when it will start and HOW TO AVAIL this facility
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)is gearing up for its Door-to-Door vaccination drive. The Municipal Corporation has been making an appeal to the Mumbai citizens to inform it if there are family members who are bed-ridden for over 6 months now and to be vaccinated at their homes. It has said that if any person in the family is not in a condition to visit the vaccination centre, the BMC will come to his or her house to administer the Covid-19 vaccine.
The details of the person must be provided to the municipal corporation, it has said.

The BMC is currently collecting data about such families. The drive will begin once it gets a nod from the state government to go ahead and vaccinate people who are either old or not fit enough to go to the centres and get them vaccinated.
Last week, the Maharashtra Government informed the Bombay High Court that it would soon begin door-to-door vaccination and a trial has already begun in Pune. It had said that the BMC has also started collecting data with regards to this.
The residents of Mumbai can give the health details of their family members to the health officers in their wards in case they wish to avail the door-to-door vaccination facility. The people will be required to give the name of the family member/s and copies of the government documents.
The BMC is also likely to give an official email-id to the citizens on its official social media handles where a person will be able to give information about the bed ridden member of the family.
The BMC also wants to get a clear view on the vaccine wastage that could occur due to the door-to-door vaccination drive. Typically, one vial pf the Covid-19 vaccine is good enough to administer 10 doses. It is trying to devise a way to prevent wastage if lesser people are administered in a particular block or building.
The BMC is also seeking information regarding the effects of Covid-19 vaccine on the bed ridden people and how to keep a check on the adverse effects of the vaccine on such people.
