Karachi faces acute shortage of COVID-19 vaccines
KARACHI: Karachi faces acute shortage of coronavirus vaccines following which vaccination centres across the megalopolis have been temporarily shut down.
The remnant vaccines were delivered to the Expo Centre from all the vaccination centers. Samaa TV website reported that the Sindh government officials refused to comment on the matter of shortage when they were approached.
A day ago, Special Assistant on National Health Services Dr Faisal Sultan had said that twelve million doses of anti-covid vaccine had so far been administered across the country.
“Two million doses of anti-covid vaccine are still available in the country and the government is ensuring procurement of additional doses,” Dr Faisal Sultan had said while briefing the media in Islamabad.
He had said there were about 2,000 vaccination centers across the country and the provincial and local authorities were working to ensure that no center faced any shortage of vaccination.
The special assistant had said the situation would further improve after June 20 with the availability of additional doses.
