As being reported the government is in close liaison with leading COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers for its early availability in the country.
NIMS would enable automated phase-wise registration of citizens for COVID-19 vaccine through SMS/ internet portals, based on CNIC numbers, it added.
“The NIMS will be made available by mid-January,” the forum informed.
The immunization mechanism would be intimated to citizens shortly.
