Pakistan to start registering people aged 65 and above for COVID-19 vaccine next week

Pakistani planning minister Asad Umar has said that Pakistan would start registering people aged 65 and above so they could be vaccinated in the second phase of the coronavirus vaccine drive. In the second phase, 17 million of the “most vulnerable” people, including 9.5 million above 65 years of age, would be given shots. The vaccination of those who register in this category will start in March.

Last Monday Pakistan received 500,000 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine for free from China and is expecting to get additional doses before the current supply runs out.
