ISLAMABAD: Former President ICCI Shahid Rasheed Butt on Tuesday lauded the decision of the government to vaccinate citizens aged 80 and above at home and initiate vaccination process for youth.

He said that youth are our future and they must be saved from the pandemic through vaccination at the earliest.

He said that wastage of vaccine should be noticed and those responsible should be punished.

The price of vaccine is more than monthly income of the majority of the population which will deprive them of immunization, he noted.

Shahid Rasheed Butt said that most serious health crisis in the history of the country demands merit and transparency in the system.

In some places, the elite are getting preference in getting the coronavirus vaccine while masses are facing issues as the vaccine available for 10 dollars globally is being sold at Rs8500.
