The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will resume its vaccination drive at state- and municipal corporation-run centres today after it received a fresh batch of doses from the Centre. The civic body had to suspend inoculation drives at government-run centres on Friday and Saturday after it ran out of vaccine stock. As per procedure, the civic body does not hold vaccination drives on Sundays.

The civic body received a batch of over 1.30 lakh vaccine doses — 85,000 Covishield manufactured by the Serum Institute of India and 40,000 of Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin, officials told The Indian Express. Suresh Kakaki, the civic body’s Additional Municipal Commissioner, said it would activate all its centres to cover more people. He added that they were expecting more stocks to arrive on Monday that would help them smoothly continue the inoculation drive.
