Taking a cue from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) on Saturday decided to launch a special drive to vaccinate students who are going abroad for higher studies.

“The PMC has decided to start a special vaccination drive for students going abroad for higher studies. This is being done to ensure they don’t face any hurdles in travelling abroad due to lack of vaccination,” said Mayor Murlidhar Mohol.
