More than 54 million people have received a first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, while some 45 million are fully vaccinated, the health ministry said.

According to the health ministry, some 87.06% of Turkey’s adult population has now received at least one dose of a two-dose vaccine.

Turkey also administered a third booster injection to more than 10.4 million people.

The ministry recorded 27,351 new coronavirus contaminations, 194 deaths and 22,004 healings in the past 24 hours.
