The National Command and Operations Center (NCOC) has decided to set up dedicated COVID-19 vaccination centers across the country for teaching and non-teaching staff at all public and private educational institutions.
According to the details, new vaccination centers will be established at tehsil level across the country while separate counters in current vaccination centers will be reserved for this purpose.
Whereas the CNOC has taken this decision to accelerate the COVID-19 vaccination of teaching and non-teaching staff and to ease the pressure on mass vaccination centers across the country.
On the contrary, last week the NCOC granted a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination center to teachers and non-teaching staff to ensure a safe environment for education and exam conduct across the country.
The announcement revealed that the pressure was mounting as teachers and non-teaching staff blocked existing vaccination centers, after which the NCOC decided to create dedicated COVID-19 vaccination centers for them.
Earlier this week, the Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) called on all educational institutions to ensure COVID-19 vaccination of all teaching and non-teaching staff by June 5.
