Drive-in to Esplanade Mall for 2nd dose vaccination
Bhubaneswar: Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) will start a drive-in facility to the vaccination centre through online slot booking for beneficiaries of the second dose of Covid vaccination in the 45 and above age group at the Parking Lot of Esplanade Mall from Saturday.
“For the inaugural day tomorrow, you can book 400 slots and in the coming days, you can book up to 500 slots per day,” said Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation Commissioner Prem Chandra Chaudhary in a video message. This facility will be available online only, he added.
The BMC Commissioner said beneficiaries have to come with their Aadhar Cards and proof of the first dose of vaccination while visiting the drive-in facility vaccination centre.
“Only two persons, the driver and the beneficiary, can come in one car to the vaccination centre. If a beneficiary is coming on a two-wheeler, he/she has to come alone since pillion driving is not allowed as it violates social distancing,” said Chaudhary.
He said this is a pilot project and it will be extended to other areas soon.
