Pakistan has developed a new homemade vaccine called ‘PakVac’ with the help of China’s Cansino Bio after numerous testing and evaluation. Through this, the country aims to reduce its dependency on the COVID-19 vaccine.
Initially, the company started using vaccination provided by the government of China. The vaccination started with frontline healthcare and then senior citizens. As of now, Pakistan has now started the vaccination phase for citizens within the age of 30 and above.
Moreover, Health Minister Dr. Faisal Sultan commended the NIH Pakistan team on the successful development of the vaccine in a recent tweet.
