Morocco’s national COVID-19 vaccination campaign will be extended to the 60 to 64 age group from February 23, a statement from the Ministry of Health announced on Sunday.
This expansion, which will also cover the first category of people with chronic diseases, will be done in parallel with the vaccination of the other previously defined categories.
The ministry calls on all those concerned to respond favorably to this call for vaccination to allow the country to achieve collective immunity.
He stressed the need to continue to respect preventive measures before and after vaccination, to help curb the spread of the virus, especially after the discovery of variants.
Morocco recorded 207 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, bringing the total to 481,155, according to the bulletin of the Ministry of Health.
The number of people vaccinated so far stands at 2,447,716, the ministry said, adding that 13,476 people have received their second dose.
