Sindh Health Dept Official Fired For Administering Covid Vaccine To Zubair Umar’s Daughter, Son-In-Law

The news about PML-N leader and former Sindh governor Zubair Umar’s son in law and daughter getting vaccinated for Covid-19, breaching the protocol that prioritises health workers, generated outrage on social media. Following the backlash, the officer under whose supervision the vaccination of both individuals was permitted has been suspended and an enquiry is to take place.
The notice issued by the Sindh Health Department has suspended the services of Dr. Aneela Qureshi who is the district officer.

Social media users condemned what they called an instance of VIP culture and said that influential individuals are getting the vaccine before health workers who have constantly put their lives at stake to tackle the ongoing pandemic. People demanded the health workers and those on frontline be preferred for Covid vaccine.

Procincial Coordinator Fayyaz Hussain Abbasi has been appointed as the head inquiry officer to conduct the investigation into the alleged vaccination of the family members of Zubair Umar.
