King Mohammed VI extends free vaccination of all Moroccans with the COVID-19 vaccine
The Ministry of Health had previously stopped free vaccination for the most disadvantaged. The royal decision therefore extends this free vaccination to the entire population without distinction.
King Mohammed VI has instructed the Government to adopt free vaccination against the COVID-19 epidemic for the benefit of all Moroccans.
This royal gesture is in line with the Sovereign’s guidelines aimed at launching, in the coming weeks, a mass vaccination operation against this epidemic. It aims to guarantee the vaccine for all Moroccans as an adequate means of immunising themselves against the virus and containing its spread with a view to a gradual return of citizens to their normal lives in peace and security, explains a statement from the Royal Cabinet.
It should be recalled that the King chaired a working session on November 9 on the vaccination strategy against COVID-19, which is part of the Sovereign’s ongoing monitoring of the evolution of this pandemic and measures to fight against its spread and protect the health and safety of citizens, the statement concludes.
The Ministry of Health had previously stopped free vaccination for the most destitute. The anti-Covid-19 vaccine is part of the reimbursable vaccines for people with medical coverage either from an insurance company or the organizations managing the AMO, had assured Minister Khalid Ait Taleb. The royal decision therefore extends this free vaccination to the entire population without distinction.
