PUNE: The PMC has announced a special vaccination drive for students going abroad for studies. The drive (offering Covishield) will be held at the civic-run Kamala Nehru Hospital every Tuesday and Wednesday on walk-in basis. Students will not have to book appointments.

The students will have to produce relevant documents that show they're headed abroad for studies.

Pune mayor Muralidhar Mohol said, "The drive has been planned considering a large number of students go abroad for studies. The drive will be held on two days - between 10am to 5pm. We may extend the sessions to all days of the week if demand grows."

The civic authority also said it will ask the state and central governments if the interval between two doses can be reduced for students.

"We cannot introduce changes at our level. We will approach the government in this regard to seek further guidance," said Rubal Agarwal, additional municipal commissioner.

The Centre has extended the gap between two Covishield jabs to 12 to 16 weeks. City-based activist Sandeep Khardekar has written a letter to PMC chief Vikram Kumar asking for a drive for students who're headed abroad and reduced interval between shots.
