The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has announced that 112,239 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine were given in the past 24 hours.
The total number of doses provided up to today stands at 10,779,163 with a rate of vaccine distribution of 108.99 doses per 100 people.
This is in line with the Ministry's plan to provide the Covid-19 vaccine to all members of society and efforts to reach acquired immunity resulting from the vaccination, which will help reduce the number of cases and control the virus.
In a major breakthrough, German pharma BioNTech said that it was working on getting approval for a version of its Covid-19 vaccine that is long-lasting.
The doses can be stored in fridges of 2 to 8°C for up to 6 months, Chief Executive Ugur Sahin said on Tuesday.
