Besides, NCOC has also decided to grant a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination facility to citizens aged 50 years or above after registering at 1166.
The facility will be available across the country with immediate effect and citizens can go to their nearest vaccination centres to receive the Coronavirus vaccine.
Note that citizens will still be required to provide original CNICs to the healthcare staff before getting vaccinated at the COVID Vaccination Centers all over the country.
Meanwhile, the registration for COVID-19 vaccination for citizens across all groups is set to start after Eid-ul-Fitr, with the government aiming to vaccinate over 70 million citizens this year.
