As many as 6.5 million doses of China's CoronaVac vaccine will be delivered to Turkey on Monday, the country's health minister has announced.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by Turkish media.
“In line with our purchasing plan, the vaccine shipments to Turkey will continue smoothly," Fahrettin Koca tweeted on Sunday.
Mass vaccinations began in Turkey on Jan. 14 after the first batch of 3 million doses of the vaccine developed by China's SinoVac Biotech arrived on Dec. 30. Later, the second consignment of 10 million doses was approved.
Over 1.23 million people, mostly health workers and elderly people, have been inoculated since Jan. 14.
