Vaccination studies continue rapidly in order to provide social immunity against the corona virus epidemic throughout Turkey.
After the Corona virus Scientific Committee meeting held yesterday, Health Minister Fahrettin Koca announced that a new phase in vaccination was started, and the vaccination process of citizens aged 45 and over started.
In this context, citizens who received their vaccination appointments came to Başakşehir Çam and Sakura City Hospital and became the vaccine they preferred from Sinovac or BioNTech vaccines when their turn came.
On the other hand, Minister Koca stated that as of next Monday, citizens aged 40 and over will be included in the vaccination program. Citizens who come within the scope of the vaccination program can get vaccinated by choosing from Sinovac or Biontech vaccines by making an appointment with family medicine or hospitals.
