Pakistan to launch COVID-19 vaccination programme next week

Pakistan is expected to launch its coronavirus vaccination campaign in the coming week, according to a government minister.

Pakistan's Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Special Initiatives Asad Umar added it is hoped that the campaign will begin with the vaccination of front-line health workers.

"The system for vaccination is in place. Hundreds of vaccination centres in the country will be administering covid (sic) vaccine. Inshallah the vaccination of front line health workers will start next week," Umar tweeted on Wednesday.

Two vaccines for emergency use have been approved by Pakistan so far, one by China National Pharmaceutical Group (SinoPharm) and another by AstraZeneca.

According to officials, the Sputnik V vaccine by Russia is also expected to get approval. The officials added the authorisations will be reviewed every quarter in terms of safety, efficacy and quality.

Pakistan reported 1,563 new coronavirus infections and 74 deaths in the latest 24-hour period, pushing the cumulative number of cases to more than 537,477, with 11,450 deaths.
