513 vac­ci­na­tors work­ing un­der the Sindh Health De­part­ment have been de­prived of their monthly salaries for the last six months ow­ing to bu­reau­cratic de­lays, sources told PPI on Sun­day.

As many as 541 vac­ci­na­tors were ap­pointed on

13th July 2018 out of which 513 joined du­ties. All vac­ci­na­tors have not been paid their monthly salaries since their join­ing due to bu­reau­cratic hur­dles and ut­ter neg­li­gence.

The au­thor­i­ties con­cerned had promised vac­ci­na­tors that their salaries would be re­leased within two months after join­ing but this was not done.

The vac­ci­na­tors are reg­u­larly vis­it­ing con­cerned Dis­trict Health Of­fi­cers for re­lease of their six-month salaries. The vac­ci­na­tors were ex­tremely dis­turbed over the non- pay­ment of salaries.

Sindh Chief Min­is­ter Syed Mu­rad Ali Shah has kept health de­part­ment among his top pri­or­i­ties but such an act of salary de­lay shows a deep neg­a­tiv­ity which needs to be over­come.
