Head of National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) and Federal Planning Minister Asad Umar has urged citizens to get themselves vaccinated at the earliest to avoid the possible fifth wave of coronavirus if things go out of control, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

In a tweet uploaded on Thursday, Asad Umar said, “To ensure there is no 5th wave of Covid we have to meet vaccination targets set. Otherwise, despite a sharp decline in cases, we remain vulnerable, if a large number of people remain unvaccinated.”

He said “Remember that second dose was vital for protection against Covid, so get fully vaccinated.”

The minister also shared the names of the cities that have been best so far in vaccine drive.
