The government of Punjab has decided to launch a door-to-door Covid-19 drive from October 25 to reach the vaccination targets.

In a move to meet vaccination targets, the government of Punjab has announced it will kick off its door-to-door coronavirus vaccination drive from October 25.

A notification issued by the provincial governement stated that the campaign will continue till November 12, during which the residents of Punjab’s nine districts and 38 districts will be inoculated at their door-step.

As per the notification, the drive is aimed at ensuring that 100% of the targeted people are immunised against the virus. The authorities have also appointed a focal person who will ensure that the campaign achieves the set target.

The move has been made to vaccinate the people who still have not got themselves vaccinated after reports showed that a number of people have not received the anti-coronavirus jabs.

CO Lahore Dr Faisal Malik told media he has been instructed to ensure people who have not yet received the jab are vaccinated. He said legal action will be taken against those who refuse to get themselves vaccinated.
