He said 15,772,101 individuals had received a first dose while 8,770,336 people got their second dose.
“By percentage, 48.3% of the country’s population have received a first dose while 26.9% have completed the two-dose vaccination,” he said.
On the daily vaccination rate, he said 389,641 doses were administered yesterday, with 156,816 first-dose injections and 232,825 second jabs.
