Meanwhile, a civic official in Mumbai said as many as 37 bedridden people in Mumbai were administered COVID-19 vaccine doses on Friday, the first day of a drive launched for this category of beneficiaries on a trial basis.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) official said 14 of the 37 beneficiaries were administered vaccines at an old-age home, while the other 23 were inoculated at their homes.

The civic body has launched a vaccination drive for bedridden people on a trial basis in the K-east ward that includes areas like Andheri East, Marol and Chakala in the western suburbs of Mumbai.

According to the civic body, it had received requests from 4,466 people for the inoculation of bedridden people until Wednesday on its email ID.

So far, 71,21,950 people have been vaccinated against COVID-19 in the city. Of these, 17,35,683 citizens have taken both doses of the vaccine.
