As Pakistan expects the first batch of coronavirus vaccine by 31st January, the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) has finalized the COVID-19 vaccine strategy.
According to the details, three coronavirus vaccines including Russia’s Sputnik-V, China’s Sinopharm, and UK’s Oxford-AstraZeneca have been approved by the government so far.
Here is how you can register your self for the COVID-19 Vaccine
Citizens including frontline healthcare workers will send the CNIC number to 1166 through SMS or use NIMS website for registration.
After verification, designated AVC (Adult Vaccine Centre) (based on “Present Address” and PIN Code will be sent to the citizen through SMS)
If the designated AVC is outside the current tehsil of the citizen, the person can change the designated health facility by visiting NIMS web portal or by calling the 1166 helpline within 5 days of receipt of the first SMS.
Upon availability of vaccine at the Designated Vaccination Centre, SMS will be sent to the citizen to intimate appointment date for vaccine administration.
After successful registration, the citizen will visit AVC on the date of appointment along with the original CNIC and received PIB Code (mandatory).
Vaccination staff will verify the CNIC and PIN code.
After successful verification, the citizen will be vaccinated. Upon vaccine administration, vaccination staff will enter the details in NIMS, and a confirmation message will be sent to the citizen through SMS. The citizen will stay in AVC for 30 min for the post-inoculation monitoring.
Real-time dashboards for the federal, provincial, and district health departments will be generated automatically.
