"It will open for vaccination as soon as the stock is replenished," Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) said.

However, despite it being out of stock, people gathered in huge numbers outside the center.

The vaccination drive at the vaccination center was earlier halted for the same reason on April 20.

Under phase three of the vaccination drive, everyone above 18 years of age will be eligible to get vaccinated against Covid-19 from May 1, the central government said on April 19. The registration for the same will begin at 4 pm on Wednesday.

According to official data, there are 6,74,358 active cases of Covid-19 in Maharashtra.
