2. The NCOC, @Asad_Umar & @fslsltn have done a tremendous job of ensuring a smooth vaccine roll out across Pakistan. With vaccine also arriving in the private sector for those who can afford to pay, the next few months should see the vaccination campaign roll out in full swing.— Taimur Khan Jhagra (@Jhagra) February 15, 2021
