Nearly 1.4 million people have been vaccinated in Togo

(Togo First) - As the year is about to end, Togo has reached its goal to vaccinate at least a million people against Covid-19. About 1.4 million adults (+18 years) have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to the minister of health who disclosed the figure during the council of ministers held yesterday, Dec. 8.

The official attributes the achievement to the fast-paced vaccination campaign launched by the government on November 22 and ended on December 6.

Last October, the government said 1.3 million doses had been administered across the country. 

Also, data gathered by the Financial Times reveals that 4.9% of the Togolese people are fully vaccinated, and 8.7% have received at least one dose. This makes Togo the country with the highest vaccination rate in the WAEMU.

Despite these encouraging results, the council of ministers urged the government to be more involved in the sensitization of the people regarding safety measures and vaccination.
