Pakistanis who are travelling abroad and are 18 years of age and above can now get the COVID-19 vaccine at any vaccination centre in the country.

The National Command and Operation Centre announced Thursday that walk-in vaccinations were open for all adults meeting the following criteria:

  • Working abroad on a work visa
  • Holding an iqama
  • Students studying abroad
  • Travelling by sea

The decision was taken after considering that many countries, workplaces, universities and shipping companies abroad require proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

The NCOC listed the steps for registration and vaccination on Twitter.

It was necessary to ensure all clinical SOPs were followed during vaccine administration, it said.

People under 40 years should not receive the Astrazeneca vaccine (Covishield). They can get any of the three Chinese-made Sinopharm, Sinovac (CoronaVac) and Cansino (Convidecia) vaccines.

A total of 4,747,033 vaccine doses have been administered in Pakistan so far. More than 200,000 shots were given over the last 24 hours.

    My friend daughter having an enrollment at abroad wants to get vaccinated. she is below 30. How can she register herself for registration. She went twice to a nearby vaccination center at Peshawar but was denied due to below 30.
    is there any one who can solve our problem of her registration for vaccination.
