As the Covid-19 vaccination drive continues across the country, the drive-in vaccination centres set up by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for specially-abled people and senior citizens have won praise online.
In a tweet, the BMC shared details about a drive-in vaccination centre for the elderly and specially-abled where they can get the vaccine without getting out of the vehicle or standing in a queue.
“A new vaccination centre by.@mybmcWardGN at Kohinoor Parking Lot, JK Sawant Marg, Dadar(W), vaccinating senior citizens and specially-abled Mumbaikars driving in for their 2nd dose of #Covishield,” read the caption of the tweet. Along with the post, several pictures of the citizens getting vaccinated were shared.

Should the drive-in vaccination not be done in open air, instead of in an enclosed underground car park?

Very progressive process. Easy to maintain sequence and social distance. Respect
