Nursing officer Jhankar, who is administering the vaccine, said the Covishield vaccine is being administered here. "Not everyone is able to reach hospitals. Especially those who work in mandis. Many people do not even know how to register, so it is necessary to provide such facilities to them. People are very happy with this arrangement," added Jhankar.

As per the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive, about 1.5 lakh people are being vaccinated in Delhi every day. However, a large population is still out of reach of the vaccine.
