The Chikhli Moshi Housing Society Federation has resumed its special vaccination drive in housing societies in the area after a few months’ gap. Federation chief Sanjeevan Sangle said they had requested PCMC Commissioner Rajesh Patil to allocate vaccines for the purpose.

“With improved availability of vaccines, the municipal commissioner deputed a team of medical staff to conduct the camp. The first such camp saw 457 people get vaccinated,” he said.

The Federation had earlier conducted camps in housing societies when vaccines were easily available. The drive was, however, suspended when the supply shrunk. Housing societies had found the drive, organised at focal points like club houses, to be helpful as it provided the service almost at their doorstep.

Sangle said they intend to continue the drive which will also improve the vaccination rate. “We will vaccinate as many people as possible so the government centres see less crowding,” he said. Covishield vaccines are administered free of cost during the drive.

Earlier, when pre-registration was mandatory, housing societies and the Federation helped people complete their registrations.
