Sindh’s Health Ministry has recommended the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) to declare the COVID-19 vaccination certificates as ‘mandatory’ for citizens to avail banking and post office services.
In an official letter, the provincial health ministry asked the NCOC to order bank and post office employees to ensure only vaccinated citizens are provided services and those who fail to give proof of their vaccination should be denied access to services.
In a separate development, Sindh’s Health Ministry has suggested the provincial Home Ministry declare COVID-19 vaccination certificates as ‘mandatory’ for citizens to enter restaurants and hotels all over the province.
Under this requirement, only vaccinated citizens will be offered dine-in service at restaurants or stay at hotels and those who fail to provide vaccination certificates will not be allowed to enter restaurants and hotels.
Last week, Sindh’s Transport Ministry announced to ban unvaccinated citizens from using public transport across the province from 15 September and from using motorways from 15 October.
The Sindh government has already declared COVID-19 vaccination certificates mandatory for entry into educational institutes, shopping malls, and wedding halls while fixing 30 September as the deadline for COVID-19 vaccination for all citizens.
