Taking to Twitter, MNHSRC confirmed that it has officially joined TikTok and will be using the platform to disseminate information about COVID-19 prevention and its vaccine programme.

Through the platform, we aim to reach out to Pakistanis across the country and educate them about COVID-19 prevention measures and our vaccine programme. Being on TikTok will significantly help us accelerate our efforts in that regard."
