Vaccination Process Resumes After Shortage in Punjab

The vaccination process in major cities of Punjab has resumed following a delay for several days due to a shortage of COVID-19 vaccines.

According to the deputy commissioner of Lahore, the Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccines are now available at the centers, however, those who need the AstraZeneca vaccine would have to wait longer.
