The COVID-19 vaccination drive in Mumbai will be suspended on Thursday at the civic-run as well as government-run centres due to paucity of vaccine doses, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the civic body said the vaccination drive will resume once it receives a fresh stock of vaccines. "The citizens of Mumbai are constantly informed about the vaccination, depending upon the extent to which the stock of vaccines received, and an appropriate decision is taken," it said.
