Kuwait and Morocco plans Covid vaccination campaign

Kuwait and Morocco plans Covid vaccination campaign

According to the Kuwait Times, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Health approved extending the period between the two doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine from 4 weeks to 12 weeks. This move comes as the ministerial committees confirmed the studies of vaccine effectiveness of the extended time course.

People who received the first dose of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines can reschedule accordingly.

Kuwait health authorities have taken new steps to extend the campaign against Covid19.

Meanwhile, Morocco's Kingdom received the second batch of 4 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine on Thursday.

In Morocco, the second batch of AstraZeneca vaccine from India arrived on a Royal Air Maroc flight in Casablanca on Thursday afternoon.

"This new batch would enable a steady continuation of Morocco's national vaccination campaign," said Said Afif, a member of the health ministry's scientific committee, to Reuters.

Kuwait and Morocco had authorized the emergency use of Oxford-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine for use within their countries in January.
