DUBAI: Turkey has launched a nationwide vaccination program against COVID-19 after the government approved emergency use of China’s Sinovac, local daily Hurriyet Daily reported.
More than 1 million health workers in the country were among the first to get the jab, after the country’s Science Board members were inoculated live on Jan. 13.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan received jab the next day.
Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said it was an “absolute need to get the injection” to return to “old lives,” but the vaccination was not mandatory.
