Reliance Foundation and MCGM to provide 3 lakh free Covid-19 vaccines

Mumbai : In a major outreach scheme to protect Mumbai’s vulnerable communities, Reliance Foundation through Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital will collaborate with Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) to provide three lakh COVID-19 vaccination doses to communities across 50 locations in Mumbai. This free vaccination drive aims to protect underprivileged people in neighbourhoods including Dharavi, Worli, Wadala, Colaba, Pratiksha Nagar, Kamatipura, Mankhurd, Chembur, Govandi and Bhandup.

Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital is deploying a state-of-the-art mobile vehicle unit to
conduct the vaccination drive across the selected locations of Mumbai, while MCGM and
BEST will provide infrastructure and logistics support for the drive. This initiative builds on Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital’s regular health outreach initiatives in Mumbai, which
address primary and preventive healthcare needs of vulnerable populations through mobile
medical vans and static medical units. This vaccination programme will be carried out over
the next three months and is part of Reliance Foundation’s Mission Vaccine Suraksha
initiative which will also provide vaccination for underprivileged communities around the
country over the next few months.

Smt Nita M Ambani, Founder and Chairperson, Reliance Foundation said: “Reliance Foundation has stood by the nation at every step of this relentless fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Mass vaccination is now the single biggest weapon to protect people from the
virus. We are committed to doing everything we can to ensure that every single Indian has
access to vaccination as quickly and efficiently as possible. I am confident that together we
will rise above this challenging period and good times will be upon us again.”
