Despite vaccinating more than 30,000 people against Coronavirus, healthcare authorities in the federal capital have not yet issued COVID-19 vaccination cards.
According to District Health Officer (DHO) Islamabad, Dr. Zaeem Zia, the COVID-19 vaccination card will serve as a travel permit, allowing the holders to travel without restrictions and easily prove that they have been vaccinated against Coronavirus.

The portal will be integrated into the website of the National Immunization Management System (NIMS) from where vaccination cards will be downloaded by just entering CNIC numbers.
