PMA Punjab calls for
offering Covid Vaccine
to HCPs in private sector

LAHORE: Pakistan Medical Association Punjab has appreciated the government efforts to provide vaccination against Covid to healthcare workers in public sector on priority basis. However, it has reminded the authorities that along with healthcare workers in public healthcare facilities, doctors in private sector had also did a commendable job and many of them sacrificed their lives while managing Covid patients. Hence, they should also be included the vaccination programme.

Through another resolution the PMA Punjab expressed its concern that criminals who kidnapped Dr. Sajid Mustafa in Sahiwal and released him after payment of ransom of one and a half crore rupees have not yet been arrested. It urged the authorities to arrest them immediately as it has sent an alarm signal among the healthcare professionals. (PR)
