The certificate will confirm that the holder has received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The shot being used in Pakistan currently is the Chinese-made two-dose Sinopharm vaccine.
The other vaccine available is the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, which also has two doses. This, however, has not been rolled out yet. It was imported by the private sector and can be bought from major hospitals once it becomes available.
Umar also announced on Friday that COVID-19 vaccine registration for Pakistani above 50 years will start from March 30.
