The Health Ministry began Tuesday deploying mobile health teams to weekly markets and inland regions to deliver COVID-19 vaccines, said Adviser to the Health Minister Ines Gmati.
Other medical and paramdical teams headed Wednesday, along with the Tunisian Red Crescent, to Sidi Bouzid and Tataouine.
Gmati said vaccination campaigns are organised by local health directorates, in collaboration with healthcare and basic healthcare centres. They are geared towards the over-18s who did not receive the first dose or are not double jabbed.
The vaccines used are Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.
