Almost 1 million people vaccinated in Turkey in a day

Some 997,000 vaccine doses were given in Turkey on Friday, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said.

“On June 25, 997,000 people turned to medical institutions for the vaccine. If those who postpone vaccination knew of its importance, they would thank those who have already been vaccinated. Don’t put yourself at risk. Make an appointment, get vaccinated,” Koca wrote on Twitter.

Turkey has administered over 46.84 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines since it launched a mass vaccination campaign in mid-January, according to official figures released on Saturday.

More than 32 million people have received their first doses, while over 14.8 million have been fully vaccinated, showed the Health Ministry count.

It also confirmed 5,266 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours, including 470 symptomatic patients.

Turkey’s overall case tally is now over 5.4 million, while the nationwide death toll has reached 49,524 with 51 new fatalities.
