Morocco to impose vaccine pass starting Oct. 21
As of October 21, Morocco will make it mandatory to show a vaccine pass for travel and for access to hotels, restaurants and other public places, the government said.
The decision was taken in a context marked by a drop in infections and a progress in the vaccination campaign, the government said in a statement.
Employees and citizens will also have to present the vaccine pass in order to access public administrations, the statement said.
By Oct. 18, Morocco has fully vaccinated 21 million people with two jabs and administered a third dose to over 777,000 people.
Morocco’s health ministry has also appealed to reluctant people to hurry up to vaccination centers to take the Covid-19 jabs in order to bolster collective immunity.
Morocco is by far the nation that has administered the most doses in the African continent opting mostly for Sinopharm, AstraZeneca and Pfizer.
