The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has allowed housing societies to tie up with private hospitals and conduct vaccination drives within the society premises, subject to stock availability.

These vaccines will come at a cost set by the government for private hospitals. While some housing societies are already in talks with the BMC, a few others are trying to set up their infrastructure. Hospitals will have to ensure all protocols are followed during the drive.
