Commissioner of BMC, IS chahal was optimistic that all the mumbai population will be vaccinated by the end of october month.

More than 76% of the senior citizens are fully vaccinated and 100 of the population has given at least one shot of immunisation.

By observing the data of 45-59 age group, it is seen that 100% of them are given one shot of vaccine n 71% are fully vaccinated

In the age group of 18 – 44, 2% of them are given at least one dose of vaccine. Adjoining cities are also taken into consideration. Thus the population of age categories of these areas are added with the population of cities and found that  100 % are also fully vaccinated.

He also said that ‘ we may be able to partially immunise all the population by the end of october and we will try to fully vaccinate by december end. IS chahal credited Mumbai’s lead for complete vaccination in big cities. The tripartite model is involved as it include corporates, BMC and private hospitals 

Last step of this fight might be challenging

Pune is one of the areas which is fully vaccinated near mumbai. Since January, 1.3 crore of doses have been given to mumbai. 42% of them were administered to the private sector.

The addition of 7.6 lakh vaccinations in slum areas is administered by CSR private hospital MCGM model.

IS chahal said that we managed to persuade corporations to fund private hospitals and help them to buy vaccines and work with BMC. It has increased 6% of vaccinations.

He also said that since august, vaccines of worth rs 50 crore are added in this model 

It seems that the contribution of the government sector and private sector is almost equal, which has given an edge over the other states.

Conclusion

Suresh kakani, additional municipal commissioner said that they will start setting up the cantres to cater to 10-12 buildings. It will be done to give faculty to everyone and anyone can approach.
