Alongside this, total 5,754 beneficiaries above 60 years of age were also inoculated on Saturday, along with 1,216 Health Care Workers and Frontline Workers.

The numbers also included 35 lactating mothers, 17 pregnant, 35 specially abled citizens and 26 beneficiaries without their ID. As many as 268 beneficiaries travelling abroad were also vaccinated on Saturday.

The daily number of beneficiaries recorded a slight fall on Saturday as around 88,000 beneficiaries were vaccinated earlier on Friday.

Civic officials said that earlier more than one lakh beneficiaries were vaccinated regularly however, due to the rains the numbers have dropped in the ongoing week.

"We are vaccinating aggressively and more than 400 centres are operational at present. In the first three days on next week, we expect more footfall as walk ins will be allowed," said an official.

Vaccination in Mumbai will remain non operational on Sunday (July 18) and will resume on Monday (July 19) morning from 9 am.
