As the government commences the third leg of mass vaccination against Covid-19, a major private hospital said that it will initiate a large-scale vaccination drive in a facility that is probably, the largest in the country so far.

The hospital said that the facility is spread out in a large area and the patient flows have been organized in a manner that ensures full social distancing with covid norms being followed at all times.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Abhay Soi, Chairman & MD, Max Healthcare said, “I am happy to share that our team has been able to set up this facility in just about 48 hours with complete support from members of RSSB, Pusa Road.

We will scale up vaccinations in the coming days and try and reach out to as many people as possible.”
