The district administration of Indore is preparing to set up drive-in vaccination centres across Indore for the 45+ age group. A total of 6 such drive-in centres will be coming up in the city to thwart the second surge of covid infections through immunisation.

Preparations are in full swing to set up drive-in vaccination centres for the 45+ age group in Indore, which will be coming up at Tejaji Nagar, Chiman Bagh, MR 9 Road and VIP Road. Apart from these places, 2 existing drive-in RTPCR test centres at Dussehra Maidan and Nehru Stadium will also be used as drive-in vaccination centres.

Three of the above-mentioned sites were surveyed and approved by the District Collector, Municipal Commissioner and local representatives, on Sunday. These drive-in vaccination centres are set to be launched in the coming 2-3 days and will be speeding up the process of inoculation among the eligible beneficiaries.

The know-how of drive-in vaccination centres

People belonging to the 45+ age group will have to register themselves at the government's online portal and book a slot before they can get their vaccine jabs at the drive-in centres. Eligible beneficiaries can get vaccine jabs without exiting their vehicles. For individuals driving cars, a one-way entry/exit lane is being set up to ensure that the entire process is hassle-free.

Apart from dedicated lanes for four-wheelers and two-wheelers, an observation room will also be set up so that the medical staff can meet the requirement of observing individuals for 30 minutes, post-immunisation. Further, the computerised receipts will be used to keep a track of the observation time of each beneficiary, read reports.
