People protested for the Covid-19 vaccination on Monday again at the Expo Centre in Lahore and in several other cities of Punjab against the non-availability of the vaccines.
The protesters chanted slogans against the health department, claiming that they had been assured earlier that they would be vaccinated after the weekend but the officials had told them once again that they had not received the vaccines yet.
Besides Lahore, protests over the issue also took place in Faisalabad, Multan, Chakwal, Narowal, and other cities, while the vaccination service remained suspended at centers set up for the purpose across the province.
However, the Punjab health department spokesperson claimed that the vaccines had been delivered to the centres.
Despite the claim, the vaccination could not resume at the centres and hospitals in Lahore and other big cities.
People protested in front of the vaccination facility at the Expo Centre in Johar Town before the police and local administration officials pacified them with a promise that the vaccines would be made available soon.
