Coronavirus vaccines resumed in Rawalpindi on Monday after a brief hiatus caused by a countrywide shortage of jabs. After the resumption of inoculation, a large number of citizens showed up at all 30 vaccination centres, including seven in the city and cantonment areas.
In the beggining, the District Health Authority (DHA) had limited the vaccination against Covid-19 before completely halting it last Friday at all centres.
The inoculation resumed in Rawalpindi after provincial health authorities received jabs from the National Command and Operation Centre following the arrival of 1.5 million coronavirus vaccines from China.
Chinese Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines are being administered to the people at all centres while the Red Crescent Centre has been dedicated to administering AstraZeneca vaccines for people going abroad. The inoculation has also been resumed at 23 other vaccination centres across the district.
