The Sindh government has established a drive-through coronavirus vaccination facility in Karachi’s Clifton area, the provincial government’s spokesperson MurtazaWahab announced Saturday.
The spokesperson, speaking at the inauguration, said that the government has set up the facility in partnership with JS Bank.
“It has been established across the world that if people wish to end restrictions, then a huge chunk of the population should get vaccinated,” he said.
Wahab said that the Sindh government had set up several free vaccination centres across the province and today, the government has started an inoculation drive in Clifton near Dua Restaurant.
“This is a public-private partnership initiative which is allowing a common citizen to get vaccinated […] Over here they have Moderna, CanSino, and Sinopharm,” Wahab said.
The spokesperson urged all the people to get themselves inoculated so that the spread of coronavirus could be stemmed.
Moreover, the Punjab government has decided to launch a door-to-door coronavirus vaccination campaign from July 26 in five cities of the province — Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Multan and Rawalpindi — to meet the targets set by the National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC).
The decision was taken in a meeting jointly chaired by Provincial Minister for Health Dr Yasmin Rashid and the Punjab chief secretary at the Civil Secretariat on Saturday.
