National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) has decided to set up devoted COVID-19 vaccination centers across the country for teaching and non-teaching staff of all public and private educational institutions.
According to details, new vaccination centers will be established at the tehsil level across the country while distinct counters in the current vaccination centers will be reserved for the purpose.
Whereas NCOC has taken this decision to accelerate the COVID-19 vaccination of teaching and non-teaching staff and ease the pressure on mass vaccination centers across the country.
On the contrary last week, NCOC granted a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination facility to teachers and non-teaching staff in order to ensure a safe environment for education and conduct of exams countrywide.
The announcement came to light that pressure was growing as teachers and non-teaching staff jammed existing vaccination centers after which NCOC decided to establish dedicated COVID-19 vaccination centers for them.
Earlier this week, the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) has directed all educational institutes to ensure COVID-19 vaccination of all teaching and non-teaching staff members by 5 June.
