Elderly and handicapped people will be administered the coronavirus vaccine at their homes in Punjab, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar announced Thursday.
In a press conference in Lahore, the provincial chief minister said the government was starting the home vaccination service across Punjab.
The coronavirus has so far claimed 6,427 lives in Punjab alone, while the number of confirmed cases in the province stands at 223,181.
