Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar has on Wednesday said that the system for vaccination is in place across the country. Hundreds of vaccination centres in the country will be administering COVID-19 vaccine soon, he said.

The National Command and Control Centre (NCOC) session was chaired earlier today by Asad Umar, accompanied by NCOC Lieutenant General Hamood-uz-Zaman Khan and Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mehmood.

The NCOC has unveiled a comprehensive plan to administer the vaccine for the Covid-19 across the country to curb deadly virus’s outbreak.

The plan has been adopted after taking all the provinces and other stakeholders onboard. It added that the strategy has been evolved in light of the established international regulations and health guidelines.

Moreover, the meeting was informed that the NIMS is fully digital, aimed at limiting the human error, and it will impart the information relating to the AVCs and appointments for vaccinations to the masses automatically.

The forum was apprised that vaccination centres have been established across the country, while the training of staff and other arrangements have been completed to begin the inoculation.

Vaccination process

Once informed about the vaccination, the masses as well as the frontline healthcare workers will have to send an SMS to 1166 or visit the NIMS website for registration.

Afterwards, a PIN code will be sent to the applicant while an AVC will be designated to them based on their present address. Once the vaccine is made available, the applicants will receive further details.

Prior to the vaccination, the system will authenticate the Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) number of the applicant.

Once confirmed by the NIMS, the vaccine will be administered to the masses. The details will be viewable through a real-time dashboard of the system.
