The Punjab government has launched a mobile vaccination service for senior citizens aged above 80 years and differently-abled persons aged above 50. 

Sources have revealed that the service is initially available in Punjab’s four cities, of Lahore, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, and Multan.

The initiative has been taken to speed up the vaccination process during a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases in the country.

Speaking about the mobile vaccination initiative, the Punjab Minister for Health, Dr. Yasmin Rashid, said, “Senior citizens who are 80 years and above and those with disabilities over 50 years of age don’t have to leave home for the vaccine as the government vaccine vans will reach them wherever they are.”

The Chief Minister of Punjab, Usman Buzdar, urged people to get vaccinated and said, “citizens can simply call the health helpline 1033 to get vaccinated at home.”

Vaccinations for citizens over the age of 60  and above commenced on the 10th of March, while registrations for people above 50 started last week on the 30th of March.
