Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar on Friday said that more than 20 million people had been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in Pakistan.
” 5 crore (50 million) people have received at least one dose [of the vaccine],” Umar added.
The planning minister further expressed his confidence in surpassing the ‘daunting target’ of vaccinating 70 million people by the end of this year.
In the early days of the vaccination campaign we had set a daunting target of vaccinating 7 crore people by the end of this year. Happy to report that 5 crore people have now recieved atleast 1 dose. More than 2 crore fully vaccinated. Inshallah will meet & surpass the target.
