Smooth vaccination

Published March 28, 2021

THIS is with reference to the letters ‘Vaccination and senior citizens’ (March 19) that talked of the many problems that were faced by people aged over 60 years in getting themselves vaccinated against the coronovirus. I wish to share my experience with the readers in this regard. I visited the Jinnah Postgraduate medical Centre (JPMC) on March 26 fearing what fate had in store for me, but all me fears were misplaced as I was taken aback by the excellent arrangements at the JPMC. It was all over within 15-20 minutes.

Maybe I was just plain lucky, but this is how smooth it all went.
