How to Change Vaccination Center If the designated AVC is outside the citizen’s current tehsil. He or she can change the designated health facility by visiting the NIMS web portal or calling the 1166 helpline within 5 days of receiving the first SMS.
When a vaccine is available at the Specified Vaccination Centre, an SMS will be sent to the person informing them of the appointment date for vaccine administration. Further to successful registration, the citizen should visit AVC on the date of appointment with their original CNIC and PIB Code.
The CNIC and PIN code will be confirmed by vaccination agents. The person will be vaccinated after successful verification. Vaccination agents will enter the information into NIMS after administering the vaccine, and an SMS confirmation message will be sent to the resident. The citizen will remain in the AVC for 30 minutes for post-inoculation monitoring.
