Sources stated lots of people in Pakistan are getting vaccinated with the single-dose vaccine to quicken the method of getting a certificates so they might journey overseas.
Responding to the event, NADRA officers stated that the rationale why it’s issuing certificates solely to those that had been vaccinated with a double-dose vaccine is as a result of when the system was developed, Pakistan was solely administering double-dose vaccines.
