The development comes amid a significant increase in COVID-19 cases across the country, particularly in Sindh and Punjab. Coronavirus vaccine, on the other hand, is progressing briskly, with more than 30 million doses provided thus far.
According to an official statement from NCOC, Moderna’s vaccination was formerly restricted to vulnerable persons and foreign travelers, but will now be available to anyone.
Last month, two batches of Moderna’s vaccine, totaling 3 million and 2.5 million doses, arrived in Pakistan from the United States. The pills were part of the 80 million doses pledged by the United States to countries throughout the world in order to end the COVID-19 outbreak.
Moderna’s vaccination is given in two doses, two weeks apart. It has a 50.8 percent efficacy after the first dose and a 92.1 percent efficacy after the booster dose. The vaccination becomes 94.1 percent effective at preventing COVID-19 two weeks following the second dosage.
During transit, it must be kept in a freezer between -50C and -15C. During the transfer, the vaccine must be kept in its original container and kept out of direct sunlight. Unpunctured vials of Moderna’s vaccine can be kept in the refrigerator between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius for up to 30 days, whereas punctured vials can be kept between 2 and 25 degrees Celsius for up to 12 hours.
