Punjab Health Minister Dr. Yasmin Rashid has said that Pakistan will be receiving seven million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine during the month of April.
Speaking to DawnNewsTV, she said that the government has purchased around three million and four million doses of the Sinopharm and Cansino vaccines, respectively.
“They have also committed to giving us a certain amount of doses each month. So we will have an adequate number of vaccines available,” Dr. Yasmin Rashid said, urging citizens to get vaccinated for the virus.
Last week, Pakistan announced that it will start importing CanSino Covid-19 vaccine for commercial sale.
Hassan Abbas, an official of AJ Pharma said,
“We expect the first 10,000 doses to come on March 25, and 100,000 next month and 200,000 the month after.”
