Speaking at the 44th annual general meeting (AGM) of Reliance Industries (RIL) on June 24, she said, "Mass Vaccination is India's topmost and urgent priority now. It is the most reliable way out of this crisis. And to achieve this in the shortest possible time, the Government of India has recently allowed private enterprises and hospitals to join the effort. To help speed up the vaccination drive, we have set up 116 vaccinations centres in 109 cities across the country."
“We have made the entire vaccination process very easy & accessible on our physical/digital platform JioHealthHub with a click of a button, you can book a slot or download CoWin Certificates,” she said.
Reliance Foundation will offer this platform absolutely free of cost to all users. " The platform has the ability to scale up to 1 lakh vaccinations a day, that's one crore vaccinations in 100 days. We are continuously working to further increase this number," she said.
