People over 80 years of age or with disabilities can avail the service by contacting on the helpline: 1033.

According to officials, there are 0.8 million people in Punjab who age above 80.

The ambulances are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and are capable of dealing with emergency situations. There is a doctor in every ambulance.

Before the Chinese-made single-dose Cansino vaccine is administered, body temperature, blood pressure and sugar level are tested.

Each mobile is capable of vaccinating 25 to 30 people daily.
