KARACHI (92 News) - A VIP culture in Sindh as the complaints were received of vaccine being administered to acquaintances instead of frontline health workers in Karachi.

After getting complaints, the Sindh government suspended Karachi East Deputy District Health Officer Dr Anila for administering the vaccine to two acquaintances. Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho took notice when the couple had posted their pictures after the vaccination on social media.

A nationwide immunisation campaign against coronavirus began in Pakistan on February 3. Thousands of frontline health workers from both public and private sectors are being inoculated first.

On the other hand, the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) has strictly told the Sindh government to give the coronavirus vaccine only to frontline health workers. "We received complaints that that vaccine is being administered to health officers’ friends and relatives," said Asad Umar in a tweet Sunday night.

The centre took notice of it and summoned a meeting with the representatives of the Sindh government. They were told to follow the rules.
