Citi India has joined hands with Mumbai’s Jaslok Hospital & Research Center to launch a vaccination drive, called Ummeed, for low-income individuals, eligible for their first or second dosage of Covishield. Together, Citi and Jaslok Hospital aim to inoculate 100,000 citizens for free under this collaboration, one of the largest of its kind, in Dharavi, the largest slum in Asia. The drive commenced under the banner, ‘Ummeed Dharavi ke liye’. Vaccinations at Dharavi will be administered between 9.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m., Monday through Saturday (with Sundays being a weekly holiday) by the doctors and nurses of Jaslok Hospital. Jaslok Hospital & Research Centre CEO Jitendra Haryan said the 2 entities will vaccinate 100,000 citizens over the course of the next couple of months. For this drive, and for further vaccination drives, the low-income communities are being identified by non-profits and supported by the municipal authorities. Ashu Khullar, Citi India CEO, said the program, a part of  Citi’s CSR commitment, is the bank’s endeavor to help raise Mumbai’s vaccination efforts for all citizens.
