NAVI MUM­BAI: Ex­pec­tant moth­ers will­ing to opt for H1N1 vac­cines have to wait for a while.

The Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion ( NMMC) health de­part­ment, which started pro­vid­ing H1N1 vac­cines to ex­pec­tant moth­ers who are at high risk of be­ing in­fected with swine flu, are await­ing the next lot of vac­cines.

Of­fi­cials said in the first lot given last year in Au­gust to the NMMC, 100 vac­cines were pro­vided. They have all been ex­hausted.

“We have again for­warded our re­quest for 200 more vac­cines. Once we get them, we will again start urg­ing more ex­pect­ing moth­ers to opt for it,” said Dr Ramesh Nikam, in-charge of the swine flu de­part­ment of NMMC.
