Health minister reviews Covid and polio vaccination drives
Industrial sector should be directed to get all of their workers vaccinated
Provincial Minister of Sindh Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho addressed on Saturday a meeting, regarding the province-wide anti-polio virus drive and situation of coronavirus vaccination, at Emergency Operations Centre (EOC).
The minister stressed in her address that the scale of anti-Covid inoculation should be expanded while keeping in view the delta variant of the virus. She directed the concerned officials to speed up the vaccination process as well, claiming that a fourth wave of coronavirus was likely.
"All the district administrations should accelerate the vaccination against coronavirus while keeping in touch with all the relevant stakeholders," said Pechuho.
She said that the industrial sector should be directed to get all of their workers vaccinated if they want to avoid another lockdown during the potential fourth wave because only the industrial units, which have vaccinated workers, will be allowed to operate.
According to Pechuho, mass inoculation is required for staying safe from the variants and keeping the routine of life normal.
