RAWALPINDI: Residents of the far-flung districts of the region encouraged the government to raise Covid 19 vaccination centres, as many people would be returning without the first dose of the vaccine due to long waits in previously built centres.
More than 500,000 individuals in Rawalpindi district have been vaccinated against Covid-19 until now and are more interested in being vaccinated, however centres are always so crowded that sometimes people return home after waiting hours.
Nasreen Hameed, adding that the government should establish centres in the far-away flung areas where women can go without family men. “I’m living in Naseerabad, Peshawar Road, but the vaccination centre is in Fatima Jinnah University and District Headquarters Hospital, where women cannot go to the clinic.
She stated it took an hour to reach the centre via public transit but she wanted to be vaccinated.
Mohammad Naseer, a Dhamial Camp inhabitant, told the FJWU Center that he spent two whole days. The first day, and then his woman, he took his mother on a motorcycle. He remarked that there is a great need for a centre in his neighbourhood, so that people may come there and be vaccinated conveniently.
Some people, on the other hand, avoid crowds because they fear they will get Covid-19.
