As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Bharat Bijlee sponsored a vaccination drive in Navi Mumbai, which had over 12,000 beneficiaries.
The drive was conducted in collaboration with Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) and Wockhardt Hospitals. While Bharat Bijlee sponsored the vaccines, NMMC helped with the identification of sites and mobilisation of the drive and Wockhardt enabled the procurement and administration of the vaccines.
16 camps were set-up in various districts of Navi Mumbai including Airoli, Rabale, Turbhe and Kopar Khairane. In the first phase of the drive from October to December 2021, beneficiaries over 18 years and above were administered the COVISHIELD vaccine. In the second phase from January to February 2022, the drive was extended to adolescents over 15 years and above, and COVAXIN was administered to them as per Government norms.
The vaccination drive received great response from the local community who appreciated the easy availability of vaccines in their areas.
