District Administration Lahore in collaboration with Bank of Punjab has inaugurated the country’s first drive-through facility to vaccinate people against COVID-19 as the inoculation drive has been paced up across the country.

Deputy Commissioner Lahore Muddasir Riaz Malik announced the launching of the vaccination center on Twitter.

“Alhamdulilaah Pakistan got its first drive-through vaccination centre, which began operations at Qadafi Stadium Lahore,” he wrote.

“Vaccines will be administered to the individuals inside the cars without the need of stepping out of their vehicles in this facility,” he said, adding that centre will open from 8pm to 2am.

He also urged all citizens to get vaccinated and not to “fall prey to rumors about vaccination”.
