Ahmedabad: No entry without vaccine certificate. That’s the latest decision from the office of the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC). In its latest order to push citizens to get vaccinated, the AMC has made the certificate mandatory for use of its public facilities.

The health department of the AMC issued a press release on Friday, stating that those who have not taken Covid-19 vaccine will not be allowed to use certain facilities and services managed by it from Monday, September 20.

These will include those who have not taken a single dose as well as those who have not taken the second one despite being eligible for it. Such individuals will not be allowed entry at civic body-run buildings, zoo, swimming pools, Kankaria lakefront, BRTS and AMTS buses, etc.

In a tweet, municipal commissioner Mukesh Kumar said that the vaccine certificate would be checked at entry points of such facilities.

AMC health officer Dr Bhavin Solanki said, “AMC is conducting a mega vaccination drive. So far, 53 lakh doses have been administered. Over 36.59 lakh individuals have received one dose of the vaccine, while 16.44 lakh persons have got both the doses. Efforts are being made to vaccinate more and more people.”

Talking about the order, he said, “Those citizens who have not taken even a single dose as well as those who are eligible for the second one but have not taken it yet will not be allowed entry into AMC buildings. Also, entry in municipal gyms, swimming pools, urban health centres, riverfront, Kankaria lake front and other AMC offices will be barred for such persons. This order will be implemented from Monday, September 20.”
