It is worth mentioning here that booster doses will only be available at selected vaccine centers.
On August 24, SAPM on Health Dr. Faisal Sultan said that Pakistanis who want to travel abroad and need a specific vaccine according to the needs of the country concerned will now be able to get such a vaccine. He said the vaccine would be allowed on a travel basis, not on medical grounds.
He added that for this purpose, he would have to show his visa to the country concerned, while the vaccine would be allowed for nominal compensation from September 1.
