Morocco has reached the global immunization target

Morocco is among the countries that have already reached the global vaccination target set in May by the World Health Assembly (WHO) of vaccinating 10% of the most vulnerable groups against COVID-19 before the end of the month of September, the WHO regional office for Africa said.

It should be noted that according to data collected by the WHO, 42 of the 54 countries in Africa – nearly 80% of the total – risk not reaching the target set for vaccination against COVID-19 if the current rate of the shipment of vaccines and vaccination continues.

“The vaccine grab has delayed Africa and we urgently need more vaccines,” said Matshidiso Moeti, WHO regional director for Africa.

She added that “as new doses arrive, African countries must step up their efforts and ensure the implementation of explicit plans that allow for the early immunization of the millions of people who still face the serious threat of the COVID-19 disease“.
