ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) halted its coronavirus vaccination process on Tuesday after its IT system crashed, according to a report on Geo News.
The suspension of the vaccination process troubled people who had arrived at PIMS and had been waiting in line to get the coronavirus vaccine jab. Several elderly people were asked by the hospital's management to go back without being inoculated.
Reacting to the development, the hospital administration said the IT system had crashed due to the closure of the NTC server, adding that without the IT system, it wasn't possible to vaccinate people.
"We cannot vaccinate people without entering relevant data into NADRA's database," a hospital official said, saying that transferring the system to an alternative system will take some time.
The system is expected to be restored by 5 pm, the official said. "The other routine functions of the hospital are being done manually," he added.
