Drive-in vaccination units in Sector V and New Town

The NKDA is also plan-ning to increase the number of vaccine centres and they are likely to come up near markets and community centres.

A drive-in vaccination centre will be set up in Sector V and another in New Town next week.

The Sector V centre will come up inside the multi-storey parking lot in the AQ Block opposite Positional Astronomy Centre, near the Technopolis bus stop, an official of the Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA) said.

The one in New Town will be set up in the parking lot off Eco Park’s gate number 1, an official of  the New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) said.

“The doses will be administered for free. Anyone who is 18 years or older can get the first or the second dose at the centre though the focus will be on employees who work in Sector V,” the official said. “The recipients will not have to step out of the car to get vaccinated.”

Like the other NDITA-run centres, the jabs will be administered at the drive-in facility from 10am to 6pm.

“Recipients will have to register on the CoWIN portal before arriving at the centre. They do not need to book a slot. This will be helpful for the aged and the ailing,” said an official. Recipients will have to travel in four-wheelers.

NDITA chairman Debashis Sen said: “We want to ensure that most of the workforce in Sector V is vaccinated and safe.”

At the New Town centre, too, the jabs will be administered for free, said an official of the NKDA.

The New Town authorities are also planning to vaccinate the aged and people with mobility problems at their homes, an NKDA official said.

The NKDA is also plan-ning to increase the number of vaccine centres and they are likely to come up near markets and community centres.
