2 min read

Mysuru: Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysuru on Thursday reached the one lakh mark by administering 1,00,00 doses of COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccination being a strong tool to curb the COVID-19 Pandemic, Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysuru launched its vaccination drive in the city on March 1 early this year for the 45 years plus above age group. The 18 years plus category was started on May 11 following the government’s announcement.

To facilitate maximum vaccinations to the people of Mysuru, Apollo started an extended centre at Gaanabharathi, a close-by location, which received a very good response.

Speaking on the occasion N G Bharateesha Reddy, Vice-President and Unit Head, Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysuru said “We are happy to have achieved this milestone of one lakh vaccinations, which was possible due to exemplary teamwork, excellent execution and on-time availability of vaccines. Along with this, we extended the vaccination drive to peripherals outside the city, one such being the Tibetan settlement at Bylakuppe, where we vaccinated more than 6000 monks at the monastery and the camp. This was coupled with vaccinating all the corporate companies in Mysuru, which collectively led to this achievement.”

To further strengthen the drive, the Apollo group organized a ‘Mega Vaccination Day’ on June 30 with a ‘Dawn to Dusk’ vaccination programme open to all demonstrating our geographic spread, vaccination capability and operational efficiency. We are also one of the only private hospital groups to vaccinate a maximum number of people in the country.

Safety protocols like social distancing, compulsory mask, sanitization were strictly followed while online registration was encouraged for quick turnaround time.
