Mumbai: Over 1 lakh get Covid jab in the last 24 hours

For the third consecutive day, more than one lakh beneficiaries were vaccinated across the city on Wednesday. According to BMC data, 1,11,110 were administered Covid vaccine in the last 24 hours, of which 79,748 were between 18 to 44 years of age. However, only four beneficiaries showed adverse effects after taking the jab. Moreover, till now 47.95 lakh beneficiaries have taken the vaccine across the city, of which 38.67 lakh have taken the first dose, while 9.28 lakh have taken their second dose.
Additional municipal commissioner Suresh Kakani said, “Vaccination across all age groups will be conducted at all centres to ensure there is no crowding. We had initially thought to designate centres on the basis of age groups, but this may result in crowding.” However, according to BMC officials, if there is crowding at centres, they will develop a mechanism to control the same. On Wednesday, the BMC said that they have vaccine stock that will last for around five days.
Every vaccination centre is given 200 to 300 vaccine doses as per the demand.
