ISLAMABAD: The National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) on Monday decided to allow walk-in vaccination facility for citizens aged 70 years and above in view of a high mortality rate among senior citizens.
The registered citizens of 70 years and above can walk-in to any vaccination center from Tuesday onwards for administration of coronavirus vaccine.
Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC) would be required from the citizen to initiate vaccination process.
Moreover, the registration can be done by sending CNIC number to 1166.
This initiative would be applicable across the country including Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and Gilgit-Baltistan (GB).
Expressing concern over the rise in national positivity ratio and a surge in hospital admissions, the NCOC meeting also advised provincial administrations to act strictly against violators of standard operating procedures (SOPs).
