Expo Centre 24/7 vaccinate facility becomes operational in Karachi


KARACHI: Sindh’s largest vaccination centre became operational at Karachi Expo Center and so far, over 1,000 people have been vaccinated against coronavirus. The facility will be functional 24 hours a day and will be able to vaccinate 25,000 to 30,000 people a day without any charges. Health Minister Sindh Govt Dr Azra had inaugurated the largest vaccination centre of Pakistan at Expo Centre, Karachi. “The Expo Vaccination Center has 12 registration counters, six blocks and 96 cubicles. The Mass Vaccination Center will remain open 24 hours a day and the staff will work in three shifts where 360 healthcare workers will provide their services in each shift,” she added. “People under the age of 40 will also be able to get vaccinated from May 16,” Dr Azra Pechoho said. She warned that SOPs are not being followed by the people and that would likely bring an uptick in COVID-19 cases. Dr Azra said that apart from the vaccines received from the federal government, Sindh is ready to pay for the vaccine for the province. “We want to vaccinate as many people as possible based on the immediate availability of the vaccine and in case of problems during the vaccine registration process, come to the vaccination centre, our staff will register you and administer you the vaccine,” she said.
