Drive-through vaccination is being set up in various places across Gujarat as the state battles the second wave of COVID. The drive-through vaccination allows for people to get vaccinated while being in the comfort of a vehicle and without having to step down from the same.
In Ahmedabad, the AMC and Ashirwad Foundation had organized a drive-through vaccination at Navrangpura stadium. The day one of the drive-through vaccination saw a long queue of cars and two-wheelers. The latter was also allowed to encourage more people to take advantage of the vaccination drive.
Other drive-through vaccination drives in Gujarat
The drive-through vaccination centre was set up at Bhuj’s RD Varsani ground earlier. This came as Kutch registered a surge in cases during the second wave of COVID. The drive-through vaccination centre was to expedite the vaccination drive in the district.
The drive-through allowed people to get vaccinated without having to step out of their vehicle. However, online registration was a must to access the drive-through vaccination facility. In all, 200 people are being vaccinated at the facility.
The facility has garnered good response and also reduces crowding. Earlier, Ahmedabad had begun a similar drive-through facility for COVID testing. This was done to reduce crowding outside testing domes.
Later, this was taken up in several other districts of the state.
