Mumbai's first drive-in vaccination facility has been started recently by the city's civic body - the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). As the name suggests, the facility allows specially-abled people and senior citizens to get vaccinated for the doses against coronavirus in the convenience of their own vehicles.

Now Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra, has shared a video clip on his Twitter account showcasing the front line workers in action at the drive-in vaccination spot. People to be vaccinated can be seen waiting for their turns inside the cars. A slew of vehicles can be seen in the car parking's que where vaccination is being carried out.
