The minister noted that soon the mass vaccination from the coronavirus infection will take place in Turkey.

“The first stage of the preparation for the vaccination we have ended; 50 million of doses of vaccine will be supplied to Turkey and the state will start the vaccination on the free-of-charge basis and at a quick pace – literally during 7-10 days. We hope that after this, the number of Covid-19 infections will decrease and the pandemic issue will be solved in a month,” he added.
