PCB Vaccinates Cricketers for COVID-19

In coordination with the Pakistan Government National Command and Operation Center, the Pakistan Cricket board completed the first step of its vaccination campaign COVID-19 (NCOC).

During this process, all three formats and support staff were vaccinated against Pakistan's leading cricketers.

The first process was completed by 57 men's teams, 13 men's squad officers, and 13 NHPC men's and women's coaches. In addition to PCB match officials participating in February-March of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), a host of franchisees and support personnel were vaccinated, including three match referees and three umpires.

The vaccination campaign began on 4 March in Karachi and lasted more than two months, until its end on 6 May, at which second doses were issued in Harare to eight Pakistani players, a component of the ongoing trial series against Zimbabwe.

In the next step, the whole of the men's home will be vaccinated, including domestic cricketers, domestic cricketers, women's national cricketers, and age group support staff. Phase two is scheduled to begin soon.

Salman Naseer, Chief Operating Officer of PCB, said:

"We continue to be thankful to NCOC for understanding and prioritizing the value of vaccinations for our players as both players and support personnel travel continuously for domestic and foreign cricket obligations and take risks of infection, especially while outside of the bio-secure bubbles."

"The PCB is fully behind the government's vaccination effort and once more encourages Pakistani citizens to be vaccinated to ensure their own and family's health and safety." He added. He added.

"The sponsorship and support of the NCOC Vaccine Exposure Campaign will continue with our players – both men and women – and PCB management, as they have done on a repeat basis since last year's pandemic outbreak," he added.
