Turkey: Over 100,000 Health Workers Get COVID-19 Vaccine Jabs

Turkey has 'strong infrastructure' to carry out vaccination campaign, says health minister.

Over 100,000 health care staff in Turkey received the first doses of COVID-19 vaccine, the country's health minister said on Thursday.
"As of now, the number of health professionals getting the first doses crossed 100,000," Fahrettin Koca said on Twitter at around 1.40 p.m. local time (1040 GMT), sharing a link to the Health Ministry website that counts the people vaccinated live.
"Turkey has a strong infrastructure to carry out a vaccination program," Koca said.
As of 2 p.m., the live count showed that over 120,000 people have been vaccinated.
Three million doses of the vaccine produced by Beijing-based company SinoVac reached Turkey on Dec. 30.
On Wednesday, Turkey's official drug and medical equipment body approved the CoronaVac vaccine for emergency use against coronavirus. -
