During his remarks on Saturday, Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi announced that the vaccination of about 70% of the country's population will be completed within the next 3 or 4 days.
Since the administration of President Ebrahim Raeisi in early August, the vaccination has been considerably accelerated.
On 3 August 2021, the date that Raeisi assumed the office, only 5 million Iranians had received the Covid-19 vaccine, but last Friday, it is announced that more than 49 million vaccines were administered in Iran, accounting for more than 50% of the Iranian population that have received at least the first dose of the vaccine.
However, today the Iranian president pledged that 70% of the country's population will be completed within the next 3 or 4 days. The country is using a mixture of Iranian-manufactured vaccines and imported vaccines in its vaccination campaign against the Covid-19.
Also, last week Iranian Health Minister Bahram Einollahi announced that the vaccination of the country's school students has started.
Previously, a report showed that “Since the beginning of vaccination in Iran, the country records the highest weekly injection of COVID-19 vaccine after France and Germany.”
