Since the official launch of the national anti-covid-19 vaccination campaign in Morocco on Thursday, January 28, more than 90,000 people have received their first dose of vaccine.
The figure, which remains preliminary for the moment, was announced by the Ministry of Health Saturday evening pending the availability of full figures.
A health ministry official said that the department notes with satisfaction the successful launch of the national vaccination campaign against Covid-19.
Moreover, the Ministry has a schedule for receiving other batches of the vaccine.
The vaccination campaign was launched Thursday by King Mohammed VI who received the first dose of the vaccine.
The first phase of Morocco’s vaccination campaign will cover people in the forefront in the COVID-19 fight, including doctors, security services, teachers, and people at risk of getting infected and elderly people over 75.
Morocco has so far received two million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine and half a million doses of the Sinopharm vaccine.
In recent weeks, health authorities have reported decreasing numbers of daily new coronavirus cases with more recoveries than new cases, a good sign after a year of collective sacrifices to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Morocco.
The vaccination campaign will make it possible to achieve the expected levels of collective immunization and protect the population against the pandemic.
