Minister for Planning Asad Umar has stressed the need for meeting the vaccination targets to avoid the fifth wave of COVID-19.
In a tweet on Thursday, he said if a large number of people remain unvaccinated, we remain vulnerable despite sharp decline in cases.
The Minister said the second dose is vital for protection against COVID-19.
He said best vaccination progress has been reported in Islamabad, Peshawar, Gilgit and Mirpur while the progress is good in Skardu, Charsadda and Sargodha.
However, he said district administrations and health teams need to improve vaccination process in Hyderabad, Nowshera, Faisalabad, Quetta, Karachi, Mingora and Mardan.
To ensure there is no 5th wave of covid we have to meet vaccination targets set. Otherwise despite sharp decline in cases we remain vulnerable, if large number of people remain unvaccinated.
