No shortage of Covid-19 vaccine

27

Parliamentary Secretary of National Health Services Dr Nausheen Hamid on Thursday assured that the government was closely monitoring the vaccine availability in centers and reports about depletion of Covid-19 vaccine at corona vaccination centers are baseless.

“There was ample stock of vaccine and vaccination was continuing at centers as per schedule but in some areas due to rush of eligible citizens we faced shortage report which was later re located and resolved the issue on immediately basis”, she claimed while talking to a private news channel.

Nausheen Hamid said federal government is in the process to procure Sinopharm and CanSino from China.

Two batches of the vaccines, including 3 million doses of CanSino Biologics and 4 million Sinopharm vaccine will reach Pakistan by the end of this month.—APP
