The vaccination drive, jointly undertaken by PCMC’s Health Department and CREDAI-Pune Metro will benefit construction workers as well as their families. Vaccines earlier were not available with the Municipal Corporation for undertaking such mass campaigns but now that the availability has increased, we are happy to be able to organize such massive drives. We are also being supported by doctors, nurses and paramedical staff in Pimpri Chinchwad.”
