The Pakistan government has decided to further lower the age of those eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine to 15 years.
The National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) said Saturday that people between the ages of 15 and 18 are now eligible for the vaccine.
Children between the ages of 15 and 18 will be vaccinated for free with the Pfizer vaccine, the NCOC said.
A registration certificate will be required for children up to the age of 18 to be vaccinated. According to the NCOC, the Pfizer vaccine will be available at all central vaccination centres.
The federal government had earlier disclosed its plan to begin COVID vaccination for people aged below 18 in the country.
The NCOC also said mobile vaccination teams will visit schools and colleges.
Meanwhile, the NCOC has said that all those people, whose second dose against COVID-19 has become due, can visit any vaccination centre throughout the week to get the jab.
They are not required to wait for the message.
