Although almost 3,845 healthcare workers employed at the institute had registered for the vaccination, only 1,805 of them had gotten vaccinated, while 2,923 are yet to present themselves for it.

The management has instructed the rest of the workers to get vaccinated at the earliest.

Sindh’s Minister for Health and Population Welfare, Dr. Azra Pechuho, had also formally warned Sindh’s medical staffers last month that they would be terminated from employment for refusing to get inoculated against the coronavirus.
