The United States is the single largest contributor supporting COVAX efforts toward global COVID-19 vaccine access.
Earlier this month, Pakistan received 3.7 million doses of a Pfizer coronavirus vaccine from the US.
Meanwhile, a large number of Pakistanis, working in the Middle East and Europe, cannot travel without taking the jabs of vaccines that have been approved by their respective countries while Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are being used in the majority of these states while the South Asian country is mostly inoculating the Chinese vaccines.
Around 6 percent of Pakistan's total population of 220 million has been fully vaccinated, data cited.
