6 places where you can get free shots in Okhla
As cases are surging in Delhi and across India, many people are lining up to get Covid vaccines at camps. In Okhla too free vaccination camps are being held.
All these free vaccination camps in Okhla are being organised by CII foundation, a non-governmental trade association and advocacy group headquartered in New Delhi, with just logistic supports from a few.
