Morocco buys 65 million vaccine doses, enough for 25 mln people
Speaking to the press following the government council, Amzazi said that the order was made in implementation of the Royal directives to launch a mass vaccination campaign.
The King has also ordered that the vaccine should be free to all Moroccans.
Citizens in the front line such as health workers, security forces, teachers as well as the elderly and vulnerable people will be vaccinated first.
Morocco took part in China’s Sinopharm vaccine clinical trials and has also ordered doses from the UK’s AstraZeneca.
Chinese health authorities have given their go-ahead to the Sinopharm vaccine and Moroccan authorities said that infrastructure is ready to store and deliver the vaccine.
