“Alhamdulillah, a new record [regarding] vaccination was set in one day yesterday. More than 383,000 people were vaccinated. So far, more than 7 million have been vaccinated,” Umar wrote on Twitter.
The federal minister further said that the number of registrants is also steadily increasing, disclosing that 11.663 million people have registered so far.
A day earlier, the NCOC had opened up walk-in coronavirus vaccinations for people aged 30 and above and teachers over 18 years old.
“Walk-in vaccination for teachers above 18 years of age is open. Teachers can walk into any vaccination centre with CNIC, a stamped letter from the head of Institution / Teachers’ ID Card and get themselves vaccinated,” the NCOC tweeted later on the same day.
The federal government has launched a digital portal for the registration through which a code is assigned to the person. They can then go to a designated vaccination centre and get a jab.
