A two-day drive-through vaccination camp for people in the age group of 18-44 years is being organised at a mall in the national capital.
People can now drive their car to DLF Avenue mall in South Delhi’s Saket and take the jab while staying in the comfort of their car.
Max Hospital has collaborated with DLF Avenue mall to carry out the two-day camp.
The fee for getting vaccinated at the facility is Rs 1,100.
The vaccination process takes 15-20 minutes. After taking the jab, the beneficiaries are given a waiting period of 30 minutes in the parking lot.
Over 25 staff members of Max Hospital , including doctors, are deployed at the vaccination facility. There are three separate vaccination booths that have been set up on the premises of DLF Avenue mall.
23-year-old Antara Madhvan was one of those who got vaccinated at the centre. “This was very convenient. We did not have to wait in queues for hours. This way we reduce exposure to the virus,” she said.
Her mother, who drove the car, said: “We have heard so many cases where people went to a vaccination centre and turned positive few days later, possibly due to their exposure to the virus at the centre as all of them are so crowded. This facility ensures that my child gets vaccinated safely with absolute social distancing.”
Another beneficiary, Abu Musa, said there should be more such facilities in the city. “The whole process was very quick and smooth. There should be more facilities like this,” said Mr Musa, who was accompanied by his wife.
The centre is functioning between 10 am to 4pm today and tomorrow and there are 200 slots each on both days.
The COVID-19 lockdown has been extended for another week in the national capital.
Delhi on Saturday recorded 956 new cases, the lowest in over two months, and 122 more deaths from the infection while the positivity rate fell to 1.19 per cent from a high of 36 per cent in March, according to data shared by the health department.
