Mumbai becomes the first fully vaccinated metro city 

The vaccination drive has been going on in the country to control the pandemic. Mumbai is one of the worst affected cities by COVID-19. The city has been administering vaccines rapidly to all eligible people.

Over 50 per cent of Mumbaikars received jabs last October. Now, the officials have announced that all eligible people in Mumbai have been fully vaccinated. Thus, Mumbai has become the first metro city to achieve the target of complete vaccination for all eligible people.

As per reports, 1,02,96,917 first doses have been administered to people aged above 18 years. That equals 111 per cent of vaccination in this age group.

More than 2.05 crore vaccine doses have been administered since January 2021. While 94,92,511 people received the second dose of the vaccine, 4.15 lakh people received the third or precautionary dose.

In this context, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) tweeted yesterday, stating that 100 per cent of eligible people aged above 18 years have been given both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

BMC claimed that Mumbai became the first metro city in India. It completed vaccination to all eligible people by administering both doses of the vaccine.

Earlier, in February, the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare released data. It stated that six states and Union Territories (UTs) had completed 100 per cent vaccination in their areas.

These include Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Goa, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, and Lakshadweep. They administered vaccines to all eligible people aged above 15 years and vaccinated 100 per cent of the eligible population.

Overall, more than 75 per cent of Indians were fully vaccinated by the end of January this year. The vaccination coverage exceeded more than 185 crores until Thursday. Besides, over two crores of adolescents have been administered the first dose of the vaccines.
