Chief Minister Murad Ali has said that the mobile phone SIM cards of people who do not get vaccinated within a week should be blocked.
The government is also considering stricter controls such as withholding the salaries of government employees who do not get inoculated from next month.
The minister has asked the finance secretary to contact the Attorney General of Sindh as well.
Earlier last week, a micro-smart lockdown was imposed in cities in Sindh. The movement of the people has been restricted, and only grocery shops and pharmacies will be open. Only one person can leave the house to buy food and medicines, and they must carry their CNIC.
The government has stressed vaccinations after cases of the Delta variant emerged in the country.
Pakistan is inoculating more than 500,000 people every day.
