The immunisation campaign has been put on hold due to a shortage of vaccinations. The immunisation effort will restart after the civic body obtains a new supply of vaccines, according to the civic body.
“The citizens of Mumbai are constantly informed about the vaccination, depending upon the extent to which the stock of vaccines received, and an appropriate decision is taken,” it said.
According to the BMC, 54,35,731 people have been immunised in the city so far. The second dose has also been given to 10,72,578 beneficiaries.
According to the local authority, 63,579 persons received the vaccines on Wednesday, including 20,259 second doses. In Mumbai, there are 399 operational COVID-19 immunisation centres, including 281 run by the BMC, 20 run by the government, and 98 run by private companies.
Maharashtra has given out the most doses of any state in the country, with 3,11,59,523 doses. The first dose was given to 2,51,45,226 people, while the second dose was given to 60,14,297 people.
