BB Stock – Facility gets 5,000 BB shots for staff of five corporates | Pune News
Dr Narendra Vaidya, MD of the hospital group, said, “There were some permissions that were required from civic bodies and COWIN-related procedures that needed to be dealt with before starting the vaccination drive. We will start the drive for the companies from Thursday. We plan to finish the initial round in a week to 10 days.”
The drive will be held across three branches of the hospital group. It’s also expecting another batch of 10,000 doses from Bharat Biotech.
The hospital will charge the corporates Rs 1,300 per dose. For private hospitals, Bharat Biotech had announced a purchase price of Rs 1,200 per dose plus GST.
“We will be charging around Rs 40 over the purchase price per dose. Vaccinations will be done via CoWIN. Corporates in the tie-up will have to register via CoWIN and staff will have to visit our hospitals to get the shot,“ Dr Vaidya said.
The group has signed an MoU with five corporates in the city. “We focused on corporates because they need vaccines urgently as they are the city’s working population. Some slots will also be available for citizens who need first or second doses. We will increase slots of citizens once supply streamlines,” he added.
