"We recognize immediate and widespread vaccination as a prong in the two-pronged strategy to help with the current situation, the other being community participation in revamping healthcare infrastructure," read a statement from United by Blood, which launched the facility.

Since people will be in their cars, social distancing norms will be automatically followed and in a better fashion.

As the second wave of Covid-19 sweeps across India, there is a need for mass scale and rapid vaccination of people.

India currently has three approved vaccines in use i.e. Covishied, Covaxin and Sputnik V.

With designated vaccine drive-in facilities outside hospitals and clinics, the stress on the medical staff and infrastructure at hospitals can reduce. As of now, only a few cities like Mumbai, Bhubaneswar, Bhopal have followed the idea of having drive-through vaccination facilities.

The drive-through vaccination facility is at World Square Mall. Once the dose is administered, the person has to spend a mandatory 30-minute period in a dedicated waiting area under the observation of healthcare professionals.

The company will put a real-time live feed on the number of doses available and a number of cars in the queue so that they can plan their drive-in accordingly.

"We are happy that the District Administration Ghaziabad has accepted our proposal and is supporting us. In the coming week, we are opening similar facilities across Delhi, Gurugram, Lucknow and other cities. We are very keen to help city authorities and municipal corporations in vaccination of all citizens", said Abhishek Singh, the founder of the initiative to ANI.

The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Friday informed that the nationwide cumulative COVID-19 vaccination coverage has exceeded 19 crores.

"India has achieved a new milestone in its vaccination drive as the cumulative number of Covid-19 vaccine doses administered in the country has exceeded 19 crores (19,18,79,503) today under the Phase-3 of the nationwide vaccination drive," read an official release by the Ministry.
