Mumbai’s drive-in vaccination centre

  • Located at Kohinoor Parking Lot, on JK Sawant Marg at Dadar West (map), the drive-in vaccination centre is the first of its kind in Mumbai. 
  • The centre is the largest in Mumbai and can handle 5,000 persons a day across seven booths. Of these, two booths have been reserved for drive-ins and can handle up to 200 persons per day, and approximately 50-70 cars at any one time.
  • The drive-in facility is meant only for senior citizens and specially-abled persons over the age of 45 who are due for their second dose. They can take their shots while seated in the car. The 30-minute observation period post vaccination can also be spent in the car.
  • Registration will be at the centre.
