Covid-19: vaccination extended to 60 and 64-year-olds and people with chronic diseases

Written by FDM

From February 24, the national vaccination campaign will be extended to 60 and 64-year-olds as well as to people with chronic diseases.

The Ministry of Health announces that in parallel with the vaccination of the currently targeted categories, namely the over 65s, the national vaccination campaign will be extended, from February 24 to the age group between 60 and 64 years and people with chronic illnesses, including cancerous illnesses, and who benefit from compulsory health insurance plans (CNOPS, CNSS) and RAMED.

On the other hand, the ministry once again invited all citizens belonging to the targeted categories to continue their membership of this major campaign, with a view to achieving collective immunity, by sending an SMS to the free number 1717 or by consulting the website to find out the date and place of vaccination.

The supervisory department also insists on the need to continue to comply with preventive measures before, during, and after the anti-Covid 19 vaccination operation, to contribute to efforts to combat the spread of the virus, especially after the discovery of new variants in Morocco.
