The newly opened vaccination centre at Samaj Kalyan near YMCA ground I.C.Colony reported some damages due to cyclone 'tauktae' which caused high wind speeds on Monday. Tejasvi Ghosalkar, corporator from the said ward has written a letter to the BMC medical health officer suggesting that the said centre should be kept close for at least two days (May 18&19th) once and only when the situation comes to normalcy should be opened.
