New Delhi, May 24 (PTI) Delhi will get its first drive-through vaccination centre at the Aakash Healthcare Super Specialty Hospital in Dwarka on May 26, officials said on Monday.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will inaugurate the inoculation centre.

Akash Healthcare has procured 30,000 Covishield doses for inoculation of the 18-44 age group at the centre, an official said.

The jabs will be given from 9 AM to 5 PM.

It's an initiative by the Delhi government and southwest Delhi District Magistrate, a hospital spokesperson said.

'We will go slow at the start to avoid rush on the road and administer 40 to 50 doses for the initial few days,' DM Naveen Aggarwal said.

The number of doses administered per day will be increased gradually to around 300 per day, he said. PTI GVS TDS TDS
