Following the recommendations of the Scientific and Technical Committee of vaccination, Morocco has launched a campaign for the third dose of the covid-19 vaccine last week to boost the immune system of its citizens against covid-19 virus.
The Ministry had announced in a press release published on Friday, October 1, the official administration of this 3rd injection. The ministry disclosed that the administration of the 3rd dose will take place in vaccination centres, regardless of address. The people concerned by this operation will receive an SMS from 1717.
The third dose of anti covid vaccine will be administered to people who have received at least two doses of the vaccine six months ago taking into account the international scientific recommendations.
Vulnerable people and frontline health workers make up the largest group that flocked to the kingdom’s vaccination centres from Monday.
With a population of 36 million, 23 million have received the first dose and 19 million are fully immunised.
After a surge of infections and deaths in early August, the pandemic is on the decline in Morocco as it is in North Africa, generally.
In early July, Morocco announced a project for the local manufacture of China’s Sinopharm vaccine.
