Afghan refugees residing in Pakistan are getting corona vaccination and so far around 1500 have taken the jab while remaining are in progress who will be provided the facility on the basis of their registration with the 1166 sms system. UNHCR’s spokesman, Qaiser Afridi in a telephonic conversation with APP informed that the government was providing vaccination facilities to all refugees and Afghan citizens who are registered with the database system of NADRA. In response to a question about a press report giving an impression that Afghan Refugees are being deprived of vaccination against corona, Afridi termed it as incorrect. He said due to some technical problems, sometimes Afghan Refugees having POR (Proof of Registration) cards and ACC (Afghan Citizen Cards) get delay in receiving response from 1166 registration sms service. The NADRA authorities, he continued, are working over removing this complication which causes delay in sharing token numbers with refugees POR and ACC numbers sent through sms. All Afghan refugees who are getting token numbers from 1166 sms registration services are getting jabs at all the vaccination centers, Qaiser clarified.
