Mumbai 13th July 2021: Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Central successfully kickstarted the much-awaited Sputnik V vaccine drive. A gap of 21 days between two doses has been approved in India. To ensure that we give Mumbaikars options of different vaccines, the management at Wockhardt Mumbai Central had applied for Sputnik V and we are happy to administer Sputnik V jabs.
At Wockhardt Hospital all the three vaccines are available to Mumbaikars, as our aim is to vaccinate as many as we can in our city and to prevent the surge of COVID19. Vaccination eliminates the risk of serious illness and avoids the rick of hospitalization. The vaccination will be available from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, with prior registration on the COWIN App.
