A presentation in this regard was given by the UAVS officials to Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar on Saturday, who agreed to allocate a fund of Rs100 million for the preparation of the Covid-19 vaccine.

“We have sought a time period of six months to prepare the vaccine,” UVAS Director Prof Dr Tahir Yaqub said, adding that they had all necessary arrangements needed for its preparation. He said that in case of any progress in vaccine development, they would make an announcement within a month.

    • We supplies to face masks to europe and china still you think we cannot make vaccine make ur Document s before wrote anything against pakistan

    • I am a veterinarian from Pakistan and Toxicologist in Finland. Veterinary scientists are more connected with bacteriology, virology and immunology than human health workers, as animal health issues are more concerned with pathogens related issues. For your knowledge, veterinarians had been developing vaccines at indigenous level decades ago and quite capable to develop COVID-19 Vaccine in Pakistan. The team who developed Pfizer COVID-19 Vaccine was headed by a veterinarian.

  1. This is an attempt to fool the people of Pakistan, to hide the growing anger of the people and the failures of the government. In fact, Pakistan does not even have the money to buy the vaccine for its people and Pakistan is hoping to get the vaccine from the WHO’s Covax Program. But even this, Pakistan will not be able to get the vaccine for the entire population. In such a situation, such lies are being fabricated by the Pakistani government to console its people.

    • Vaccination compaign in Pakistan is going on very effectively. Every body knows that in first phase, elderly have been vaccinated with a well organised procedure, that is admirable. Unfortunately, forces spreading propaganda against Pakistan are loud and well supported, however, we as a state have been responding effectively and ultimately we will stand firm as nation.
