Immediate launch of the vaccination campaign in Morocco



Welcome!

The #Minister of #Health, #Khalid #Ait #Taleb, this #Thursday in #Rabat called on #Moroccans to scrupulously respect barrier gestures during the vaccination campaign against #Covid-19, scheduled “in the coming days”.

“#We call on #Moroccans to rigorously respect gestures and barrier measures, during the vaccination period which will be launched in the coming days”, #Ait #Taleb said during a press briefing, recalling that group immunity could not be reached only in the event of vaccination of more than 60% of the population.

#To this end, the #Minister indicates that there is a gap period between the two injections of the vaccine against #Covid-19, for which the #Kingdom has opted, stressing that the vaccination campaign could be impacted, if positive cases of #Covid-19 are recorded during this gap period.
