The government of outgoing President Hassan Rohani has faced criticism over the slow implementation of immunization
Iranian President-elect Ibrahim Raisi promised today that his government would launch a program of rapid, general vaccination against COVID-19 to support the launch of the domestic economy.
The fastest, general vaccination … will be among our immediate priorities from the first day of the new government. Vaccines are domestically produced, and if necessary, we will quickly procure those produced abroad so that people will feel comfortable and the economy will flourish again – Raisi said in a speech in the holy Shiite Muslim city of Mashhad in northeastern Iran, which was broadcast live by the state TV.
The government of outgoing President Hassan Rohani has faced criticism for the slow implementation of immunization in Iran, but officials blame US sanctions for poor results, which also slow down the purchase of foreign vaccines and deliveries.
