Prime Minister Imran Khan articulated satisfaction over the ongoing vaccination drive in the country and stressed that only in-time dose and protective measures could further control COVID-19.

In order to avoid the drastic situation faced by India, there is a high need for cooperative efforts by all the institutions and people to work together to guarantee the application of defensive measures.

The meeting was given a comprehensive conference by the National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) on the current pointers of the vaccination campaign and future strategy.

It was stated in the meeting that more than 10 million people had been vaccinated, which was a substantial milestone in a limited time.

In addition, the government, semi-government and private companies are confirming the supply of vaccines to 100 percent of their employees.

It was also highlighted that the capability of existing vaccine centers was being improved and the development of mobile vaccination teams was in the final stages.

Over 50 percent of the government and non-government employees had been inoculated under the Ministry of Education.

An awareness campaign has also been propelled in partnership with the private sector to create awareness about the vaccination campaign, the constructive effects of which are being gained by a large number of people agreeing to vaccination.

The number of vaccination centers has been doubled and the number of mobile teams increased from 48 to 600.

In addition, a large number of public and private hospitals have been added to the list of vaccination centers.

In view of the importance of tourism in Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir, special measures are being taken including the requirement of vaccination certificate on entry and completion of vaccination on a priority basis for the population in densely populated areas, etc.
