Chinese media also confirmed that Pakistan was going to receive another donation of the Sinopharm vaccine but they did not provide details of the doses being sent to Islamabad.

Pakistan has already received 500,000 doses of the Chinese vaccine, which is being used to inoculate frontline healthcare workers in the country. So far, over 12,000 frontline healthcare workers have already been vaccinated.

Health authorities in Pakistan had earlier confirmed that the country will get 6 to 7 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca’s AZD1222 vaccine by the end of the current month, which would be used to inoculate the remaining healthcare workers as well as people above 65 years of age. 

Due to lack of data, the Chinese vaccine is not recommended for people above 60 years of age. 

Health authorities had said that through the COVAX facility Pakistan was expected to get at least 17 million doses of Oxford-AstraZeneca’s vaccine, while it is also hopeful of getting a few hundred thousand doses of Pfizer-BioNTech’s mRNA vaccine “BNT162b2” in donation, for which Extremely Chilly Chain (UCC) tools can be being acquired.

Pakistan has thus far granted emergency use authorisation for 3 vaccines — Sinopharm, AstraZeneca and Sputnik V developed by Russia — however thus far solely China’s Sinopharm vaccine has managed to succeed in the nation. At present, it’s getting used to vaccinate the frontline healthcare staff.
