Pakistan will receive over three-and-a-half million doses of the Pfizer vaccine this week.
This would take the number of total doses of the vaccine to 9.5mn, as the US had previously provided 6mn doses of the vaccine to Pakistan over the last two weeks.
An estimated 720,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine is expected to arrive in the country by next week, which would push the total number of Pfizer vaccine doses donated by the US to 10.5mn. Last week, the US donated 6.6mn doses of Pfizer vaccine to Pakistan.
The US Embassy in Islamabad had announced that the tranche of the vaccines had been shipped to Pakistan, adding that it would help the country inoculate young and at-risk citizens.
