Pak kicks off ‘walk-in’ vaccination centres for citizens above 65

The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) said on Friday that the senior-citizens above 65 years of age can now walk-in to any designated vaccination centre to get Covid-19 vaccine jabbed. 

They can visit any vaccination centre from April 3 (tomorrow) with their CNIC to get themselves vaccinated against the coronavirus after on-spot 

Planning and Development Minister Asad Umar chaired a meeting of the NCOC to take stock of reported surge in COVID cases among children. “There is no deviation in positivity ratio in children as compared to previous waves statistics,” the NCOC said.

During all three waves, the added infection ratio in children aged between 1-10 years remained around 3% of the total cases.

The meeting expressed concern over violation of the government-defined SOPs, including mask wearing and social distancing as well as business closure timings. It, however, expressed sanctification over the procurement of Covid-19 vaccine.

It is pertinent to be stated here that the NCOC has raised high-concerns on Provincial governments to ensure the public’s access to one million doses of Chinese Sinopharm vaccine, to meet their vaccination targets.
