Sindh to Block SIMs of unvaccinated
24 July 2021
Karachi, Sindh Government decided to approach the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to ban the SIMs of the individuals who have not been vaccinated yet. This is an alternate approach to impose people to get vaccinated.
Chief Minister also said that the people will be sent SMS for getting vaccinated and if they do not get the jab within the week of the message their SIMs will be blocked. Another strategy to enforce vaccination was taken on by the province which was to stop the salary of Government employees who are not getting vaccinated.
Sindh would be the second province after Punjab to decide the blocking of SIMs for the non-vaccinated population.
Another strategy that was taken into consideration was that no government will be promoted unless they are vaccinated.
This decision was taken at a meeting chaired by health minister Dr. Yasmin Rashid.
