WHO praises Morocco for successful vaccination campaign against COVID-19

The Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Rabat said on Wednesday that Morocco is among the first 10 countries that have successfully completed the challenge of vaccination against the COVID19.

"Congratulations for the success of this campaign", the Office of the World Health Organization in Morocco wrote on its Twitter account.

Morocco is the first African nation to start a national vaccination campaign against COVID-19 on Jan. 28, when King Mohamed VI received the first dose of the vaccine.

The number of people who have been vaccinated so far in Morocco (dose 1) has reached 3,745,173, while 360,689 have received the second dose of the vaccine, according to data released on Wednesday by the health ministry in its daily report on the Covid-19 situation.

The Moroccan objective is to immunize all components of the Moroccan people (approximately 80% of the population), to reduce and then eliminate cases of contamination and death due to the epidemic, and to contain the spread of the virus, with the prospect of a gradual return to normal life.

To achieve that, Morocco has to vaccinate more than 30 million of its citizens and has to secure more than 60 million doses of vaccine. Up to now, Morocco has secured 8 million doses.
