Mumbai: The Brihanamumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) in Mumbai is likely to introduce a logo with a QR code to identify buildings in Mumbai where all eligible residents have been fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus. State Environment Minister Aditya Thackeray on Monday asked BMC to design this code to identify buildings in Mumbai where all eligible residents have taken both doses of the Covid vaccine.

Thackeray was speaking at a meeting held to review Mumbai's strategy to tackle COVID-19, increase vaccination and control vector-borne diseases in the city.

How will the QR code identify fully vaccinated people in Mumbai?

A statement issued by the minister's office said that the QR Code will be displayed at the entry gates of residential and commercial buildings and offices. The QR Codes would help in verifying that residents of housing societies and occupants of buildings and offices are fully vaccinated, it said.

“I request to create a logo with QR code for fully vaccinated housing societies, buildings, offices. BMC has done. These logos can be affixed to the entrance," Aditya Thackeray tweeted in Marathi.
