PUNE: The municipal corporation is focussing on the vaccination of construction workers in the Pune civic limits.

The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC)’s immunisation officer, Suryakant Devkar, said the civic body had vaccinated 11,000 workers in 34 camps and ward medical officers had been instructed to identify more sites to speed up the drive.

Devkar said the expected number of construction site workers could go up to 15,000, according to the preliminary data with the civic body. Of them, 11,000 have got the first jab. “With the speedy vaccination, we can cover the rest at the earliest,” he said.

Devkar told TOI, “The constraints in supply earlier used to disturb the consistency of the special drives, such as the immunization of construction workers or daily wagers. Now, we are balancing the routine immunisation drive with the special ones. We are also focusing on covering the slum areas.”

A Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) official said they were also focusing on special drives and concentrating on slum areas.
