This will be the fourth location for administering vaccines in DU colleges and institutes.

“Lakshmibai College in collaboration with the office of the District Magistrate, North West, Government of NCT of Delhi is happy to announce walk-in vaccination drive from May 28, 2021, onwards,” DU tweeted from its official account Thursday night.

DU said the vaccination centre will be administering Covishield for “all the employees of the University of Delhi and its affiliated colleges, teaching and non-teaching, (permanent, ad-hoc, contractual, retired) and their family members, without any charge”.

“No prior registration is required. Please bring proof of your identity — Aadhaar, PAN, Passport, DL (anyone) — with you for registration. Following Covid-appropriate behavior is mandatory,” DU tweeted.

“Shivaji College was administering Covaxin but it had to shift to Covishield later. They were also vaccinating 18+. All other locations are for 45+ age group. But because of lack of supply, we had to stop it. In June when new stocks come, we will start again,” he said.
