Islamabad, 23rd February: The Ministry of National Health Services (NHS) has expressed dissatisfaction over the slow pace of vaccination in Islamabad.
Baaghi TV: According to reports, the health ministry is dissatisfied over the pace of vaccination of frontline health workers against the novel coronavirus in Islamabad.
The ministry has pointed out in a letter to the capital’s public and private hospitals that the vaccination pace is slow as less than half of the total registered health workers have been injected against the virus as yet.
As per reports, a total of 8,000 health workers got themselves registered for the COVID-19 vaccine in the first phase but only 3,200 have been administered jabs, even though vaccination counters remain operational throughout the week in Islamabad.
The ministry stressed that the vaccination of health workers is essential and has advised medics and paramedical staff working at health facilities of the capital to get jabs on a priority basis.
According to sources, the second phase will start next month that will see citizens aged 65 and above getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
