Mumbaikars who are eligible to get inoculated will not have to wait for their scheduled date for vaccination, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has said on Saturday so that the vaccination drive of the city gains pace. However, they will have to first register at cowin.gov.in.

“The vaccine has now been made available to help prevent Covid-19 and it is necessary to speed up the vaccination drive. In this regard, the government has made arrangements to vaccinate senior citizens above 60 years of age and those with co-morbidities in the age group of 45-59 years. Citizens in the above-mentioned age groups are thereby appealed to register successfully on the Co-WIN portal and visit their nearest vaccination centre to get vaccinated without waiting for the date of the scheduled appointment,” the civic body said in a statement.

Amid surge, BMC to conduct random tests at public places without consent

Mumbai on Saturday reported 2,982 new infections, slightly lower than its previous day’s infection tally. The civic authorities have made it clear that there will be no lockdown in the city. Instead, the authorities are working towards tightening surveillance and covering the maximum people under vaccination.

> There will be a minimum of 400 tests daily at each mall in the city.

> At railway stations and bus depots, the target is to carry out 1,000 daily tests per station or depot.

But if there are other beneficiaries, the wastage can be stopped.
