In Pakistan, registration has been announced for the corona vaccine for people aged 50 and over, while the process of corona vaccination for people over the age of 50 will start from April.

Asad Umar, the federal minister and head of the Corona Prevention Agency (NCOC), said the process of registering people over the age of 50 for vaccination would begin on March 30.

Asad Omar says the registration process is already underway for people over the age of 60 to be vaccinated against coronavirus. People over the age of 50 should be encouraged to get the corona vaccine.

According to Asad Umar, Pakistan is buying another 7 million crore vaccine dose from China which will be used for vaccination of people above 50 years of age in the country. The vaccination process will start from April.

Federal Minister Asad Umar has said that a dose of 7 million corona vaccines will reach Pakistan in April. Vaccination of people over the age of 50 will begin in the second week of April.

The Federal Minister further said that Pakistan has purchased Cyano Farm and Can Ceno Vaccine from China. Two batches of previously purchased vaccines will arrive in Pakistan by the end of this month, while 1 million doses of cyano form vaccine will arrive this month. Pakistan has also purchased 60,000 cyano vaccines. Europe’s own manufacturing is not enough for the people of Wuhan.

He further disclosed that earlier last year Gavi had announced to supply 17 million doses of vaccine to Pakistan in March but India has stopped the process of exporting the vaccine to all Asian countries. The vaccine received by Pakistan from India has been postponed till June.

Asad Umar said that out of 7 million food items received in April, 4 million are ready meals and people will be shot while 3 million food items will be given to Pakistan in the form of raw material. The raw material found in the packaging will be given to the National Institutes of Health.

He said that 60,000 canine cyano vaccines would be single shot vaccines.
