ISLAMABAD: National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) chief Asad Umar on Thursday said that the government would start vaccinating people between the ages of 40 and 49 from Monday, May 3.
The federal minister announced on Twitter that more than 100,000 people had been vaccinated against polio for the second day in a row.
He tweeted, “Second consecutive day of more than 100,000 vaccinations. Encourage us to see the pace of registration. Vaccinations for 40 and 49 year olds will start on Monday, May 3.”
On April 27, Pakistan opened registration for the corona virus vaccine for the 40-49 age group.
At today’s NCOC, the meeting decided to open the registration of citizens over the age of 40 from tomorrow. It was also decided to allow walk-in vaccination to all registered citizens above the age of 50 years.
“If you are 40 years of age or older, please register and encourage others to register as well.”
Pakistan is currently paying taxes to people over the age of 50 and giving health vaccines to health care workers.
For registration, a digital portal has been launched by the federal government through which the person is assigned a code and then they can go to a designated vaccination center and get a job.
