Pfizer will be administered to Hajj pilgrims, work visa holders: Asad Umar

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - Federal Minister for Planning Asad Umar has said that the Pfizer vaccine is available in limited amount that is why it will be administered to Hajj pilgrims and work visa holders.

Talking to media in Islamabad on Thursday, Asad Umar said that it was not possible to remove restrictions without vaccination. The government’s target is to increase the number of centers to 4,000.

The federal minister further said that the countries asking for the preferred vaccine should reconsider their decision. China is currently the largest exporter of the corona vaccine.
