Home vaccination for bed-ridden people in Mumbai from August: Maharashtra govt

Jul 20, 2021 15:18 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Maharashtra government has informed the Bombay High Court that it will start door-to-door vaccination against Covid-19 for bed-ridden and immobile people in Mumbai for free as a pilot project from August 1.

Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni, appearing for the state government, told the court that the government has received 3,505 responses in Mumbai from people who are bed-ridden or immobile or terminally ill and hence, unable to travel to the vaccination centres.

The Bombay High Court directed the state govt that the home inoculation drive shall also include those bed-ridden and immobile people who have somehow managed to get the first dose of the vaccine.
