Moroccoís king orders free COVID-19 vaccine for all
RABAT - Morocco's King Mohammed VI ordered that all Moroccans should receive a coronavirus vaccine for free, the Royal palace said on Tuesday.
Morocco plans to roll out China's Sinopharm vaccine in the coming weeks as soon as its phase three trials are over, Prime Minister Saad Dine El Otmani told the media last month.
The country has also ordered doses from AstraZeneca and is in talks with other vaccine developers, he said.
The first injections could come within days, a Health Ministry official told media. Medical experts and health officials have appeared on television in recent weeks to promote the COVID-19 vaccines and encourage Moroccans to get immunized.
