Turkey to start COVID-19 vaccination for citizens aged 50 and above

Turkey will accelerate its vaccination campaign as of June 1 when it will start inoculating citizens aged 50 and above, the country’s Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said Wednesday.

After a meeting with the Coronavirus Scientific Advisory Board, Koca announced that Turkey will soon use its own vaccine.

“I would like to share the good news that we will soon be administering our own COVID-19 vaccine.”

He further added: “With current developments and plans for normalization, it has become clear that we will recover from the devastating impact of the outbreak this summer.”

Furthermore, Turkey has signed deals to procure 270 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, “which is more than three times our population.”

“At the beginning of next week, about 5 million doses of vaccine will reach our country,” Koca said.
