"We decided to open up vaccination registration for all 19 years and above," Asad Umar, minister in-charge of supervising anti-Covid operations, had said in a post on Twitter.
Pakistan initially had to deal with vaccination hesitancy and a shortage of vaccine supplies and had limited shots to people aged 30 or over.
Airlines around the world are increasingly operating their flights with fully vaccinated crew members for the safety of their personnel. Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways had announced that its all of its crew members are fully vaccinated against the Covid-19.
