Turkey launches booster shots for everyone above 18
Turkey started administering booster shots for citizens aged 18 and older as of today.
Anyone older than 18 years of age who were administered an mRNA vaccine at least six months ago can receive "reminder shots,” the country's Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said.
Turkey has administered over 117.8 million doses of coronavirus vaccines since it launched an immunization drive in January, according to official figures released on Wednesday.
More than 55.72 million people have been given a first vaccine dose, while over 49.4 million are fully vaccinated, the Health Ministry said.
Turkey has also given third booster shots to over 11.49 million people.
