However, according to the ministry of health services, Prime Minister Imran Khan was not fully vaccinated when he contracted the virus.
He only got the 1st dose and merely two days ago which is too soon for ANY vaccine to become effective. Anti-bodies develop 2-3 weeks after the 2nd dose of 2-dose COVID vaccines.
Earlier on March 18, Prime Minister Imran Khan had received his first dose of COVID-19 against the deadly disease.
