Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) has started Covid-19 vaccination for its workers from Thursday. Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa inaugurated a vaccination drive for BMRCL staff, street vendors and slum-dwellers.
A total of 3,128 BMRCL construction workers got Covid-19 vaccine jabs on the first day of the two-day drive. The vaccination drive was launched from the National College Metro Station and was held at four different metro stations. The other stations where the drive is being carried out are MG Road, Baiyappanahalli and Vijayanagar.
This will be the first round of vaccination to be carried out for two days under which 7,500 metro construction workers will be vaccinated.
CM BS Yediyurappa said, “A total of 900 workers will be vaccinated at each station daily with six vaccination centres in each station.”
He also lauded corporate houses for coming forward to offer assistance for the vaccination programme through their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities. Satva Consulting, ACT Grants and United Way donated vaccines to be administered to frontline workers in Bengaluru.
The CM also recently inspected the Mysuru Road-Kengeri section under Phase-2 of Bangalore Metro and said that the metro train services on the given section would open to the public from July this year.
