Secretary Primary and Secondary Health Care Punjab, Sara Aslam also announced that three more districts are being included in the special door-to-door social mobilization campaign.
The newly added districts include Sialkot, Gujarat and Sargodha.
The campaign runs from July 26 to August 14, Sarah Aslam announced. Within the campaign, citizens will be vaccinated at their doorsteps at the union council level.
Sara Aslam added that the health department has also prepared a plan for Muharram to vaccinate mourners in gatherings and processions.
He also instructed the public to follow standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the corona virus and get themselves vaccinated as soon as possible, adding that this was the only key to dealing with the Delta variant.
He added that the Delta is likely to be one of the dominant strains of COVID-19 in Pakistan and around the world.
