ISLAMABAD: National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) Chairman, Asad Umar, on Monday, announced the opening of Covid vaccine registration for citizens who are above the age of 40.

After chairing a NCOC meeting here, he in a tweet said the NCOC had decided to initiate registration of above 40 age citizens and walk-in vaccination facility for registered above 50 age citizens.

“In today’s meeting NCOC decided to open up registration of 40 plus age citizens. Also decision taken to allow walk-in-vaccination of all registered citizens of 50 plus age group,” Umar said.

He urged the masses of the above mentioned age cohort to register themselves and encourage rest of the population to get their Covid vaccine.

The NCOC chair tweeted, “If you are 40 years or older please register and encourage others to register.”

Pakistan is currently vaccinating people who are 50 plus and healthcare workers with Chinese vaccines.

A digital portal has been launched by the federal government for the registration through which a code is assigned to the person and then they can go to a designated vaccination centre and get a jab.

According to the NCOC, over 1.8 million people have been vaccinated in the country so far. According to officials on Sunday (April 25), three planes of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) carrying a consignment of one million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine left China for Pakistan amid a sharp rise in new coronavirus cases in the country.
