KARACHI: Sindh healthcare workers declining to get the coronavirus vaccine shots will not be allowed to work at health facilities, Provincial Health Minister Dr Azra Pechuho warned Thursday.

So far, 14,2315 healthcare workers have registered themselves for vaccination, Dr Pechuho said in a statement. But there are 33,356 workers who have yet to register themselves.

The minister said healthcare workers might be avoiding the vaccine because of “fake news” and “disinformation”.

She said she herself received the same vaccine and found no major side effects.

Healthcare workers, who have not received the vaccine, could infect others because they have been in contact with suspected coronavirus patients since the pandemic hit Pakistan, Dr Pechuho said.

They will not be allowed to endanger the lives of others, she added.
