Celebrate Eid With Corona Vaccine; Every one to register for Vaccine after Eid: Asad Umar

The government plans to open registration for Covid-19 vaccination for all citizens after Eid, said Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar. While speaking to senior journalists Umar made the announcement on Thursday.

The minister said China was Pakistan’s “primary source” for vaccination for now, adding that the Cansino Covid-19 vaccine will also be available in the country after Eid.

Earlier this week, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) said it has decided to administer Covid-19 vaccines to citizens aged 80 years and above in their homes.

“We will be able to vaccinate more than 125,000 people per day after Eid,” Umar told media representatives.

He noted with concern that the current number of critical care patients in the country was higher than during the first coronavirus wave.

“Strict enforcement of SOPs (standard operating procedures) can bring down the rising rate of infection,” he stressed.

In his conversation with journalists, Umar termed the next five to six weeks “critical” for the ongoing third wave of the virus in Pakistan.

He said so far 14,000 people had received vaccination through the private sector, while 1.1 million were inoculated as part of the government campaign.
