The registration for COVID-19 vaccination for Pakistanis of and above the age of 30 will begin from April 16, NCOC chief Asad Umar announced on Wednesday.

“As vaccine supply continues to improve and vaccination capacity gets enhanced in all federating units, we continue to expand the categories of those who are eligible to get vaccinated,” he tweeted.

Registration for people of and above 40 is ongoing. The minister recently said that walk-in vaccination for the age group has begun as well. People can now visit any vaccination centre and get their COVID-19 shot.

Earlier, NCOC head Umar said that the first batch of locally formulated Chinese-made Cansino vaccine will be available by the end of May.

The Cansino COVID-19 vaccine Convidecia is being processed at the National Institute of Health plant. The single-dose shot is the first coronavirus vaccine being prepared in Pakistan. Experts from China are helping with the process.
