We had been informed to be ready by January so the vaccination can start,” Bilawal said.He said the Sindh government had prepared and readied “all mechanisms”, especially to ensure vaccination for frontline workers who are “most susceptible and a very powerful” but the vaccine “by no means got here”.”It appears we should wait for a very long time.”Bilawal said this “unfair” approach by the government will lead to the private sector being given a preference. “The personal sector can have full freedom. The personal sector would be the first to rearrange a vaccine and whoever has cash will get vaccinated,” he said.He said instead what should have occurred was that the government should have first procured it for the frontline workers, “after which clearly the personal sector can start to as properly”.”But this won’t occur now.”
