Dr Faisal Sultan, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Health (SAPM), announced on Friday that coronavirus vaccination would continue on May 1 as the centers would remain open.
The SAPM tweeted, “In view of the need to continue our vaccination campaign, code vaccine centers will remain open on May 1.
The decision comes a day after Asad Umar, head of the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC), announced that Pakistan would start vaccinating people between the ages of 40 and 49 from Monday, May 3.
The federal minister announced on Twitter that more than 100,000 people had been vaccinated against polio for the second day in a row.
He tweeted, “Second consecutive day of more than 100,000 vaccinations. Encouragement to see the pace of registration. Vaccination of children between the ages of 40 and 49 will begin on Monday, May 3rd.”
On April 27, Pakistan opened registration for the corona virus vaccine for the 40-49 age group.
At today’s NCO, the meeting decided to open the registration of citizens over the age of 40 starting tomorrow. It has also been decided to allow walk-in vaccination to all registered citizens in the age group of 50 years and above.
“If you are 40 years of age or older, please register and encourage others to register as well.”
Pakistan is currently paying taxes to people over the age of 50 and giving health vaccines to health care workers.
The federal government has launched a digital registration portal through which a person is assigned a code and can then go to a designated vaccination center and get a job.
