People in the 18 plus age group on two wheelers created a ruckus at the ‘Drive Through Vaccination’ drive in Gurugram on Saturday after they came to know that the campaign was being held only for car occupants.
The drive, which was organised by the district health department in association with Park+ and MGF Mega city mall, was held at the mall’s parking lot.
The 18 plus age group people who reached the vaccination venue on two-wheelers held a protest for around half-an-hour starting at around 11 after they were denied entry inside the mall premises as the vaccination drive was organised only for those coming on four-wheelers.
It was the first ‘Drive Through Vaccination’ drive for the first dose of Covishield for 18+ age group of people which was organised at the MGF Mega City Mall parking lot on Saturday located on the Mehrauli-Gurugram Road in Gurugram. During the drive only 500 free slots were available on a first come first served basis,” a health official said.
The protesters alleged that they queued up outside the mall since early morning and were not informed at that time that the drive was organised only for car owners.
