India has also taken the initiative to increase the Vaccination drive with safety measures. Standing in line for hours and waiting for turn is a bit risky and for elderly people it’s not convenient. The announcement of the first two drive-in vaccination centres, one in DLF Mall of India and another one in Greater Noida Stadium has added its third drive-in centre at the Multilevel parking of Gaur City Mall.
The new drive-in vaccination facility has already become operational from May 22. It will cater to the residents who are taking their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and are aged between 18 to 45. This drive-through vaccination facility is located at the multilevel parking of Gaur City Mall in Noida and is open from 10 AM to 4 PM. Most importantly, prior registration on the Cowin portal is required to visit the facility. The district is likely to go for more such drives seeing the positive response from the current drive-through vaccination centres. These drive-in vaccine spots in Gautam Budh Nagar are expected to vaccinate around 200 people every day. Strict social distancing is followed as people remain inside the car.
Meanwhile, the idea of drive-through vaccination facilities is being followed in many parts of India. In fact, in the last few weeks, other Indian states such as Mumbai, Mohali, Nagpur and Gurgaon too joined the initiative of drive-through vaccination facilities for the citizens.
