1.3 million doses of China’s Sinopharm vaccine arrive in Pakistan today

ISLAMABAD – At least 1.3 million doses of China’s Siopharm vaccine will reach Pakistan today, local media reported.

Reports quoting sources in the Ministry of Health said that 2 million more doses each of Sinovac and Sinopharm will arrive in the South Asian country on Monday and Tuesday.

Last month, a special flight of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) PK-6852 airlifted two million doses of Sinovac vaccine from the Beijing Capital International Airport.

Pakistan’s nerve center on the novel disease had earlier revised the guidelines for two-dose Chinese vaccines, increasing the gap between the doses to six weeks. The double dose SinoVac and Sinopharm vaccines were initially administered with a four-week gap which has now been increased to six weeks.
