"We will not be able to make it mandatory for students until the next term. Due to a shortage of shots, it is nearly impossible," claimed a senior official from a Lahore-based university.

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has directed university administrators to vaccinate their employees and students, but academics claim that this is an unattainable objective.
