Medical teams from the Inspectorate of the Military Health Service under the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) have joined the efforts made by the Ministry of Health to ensure the success of the COVID-19 vaccination operation. These teams, made up of doctors and nurses, have started, with their counterparts from the Ministry of Health, the vaccination of citizens in the different regions of the Kingdom.
These operations are carried out in full compliance with preventive measures, such as wearing a mask, observing physical distancing and sterilization, in accordance with the standards adopted by the health authorities. In this regard, these military teams contributed, Thursday, to the vaccination of citizens at the Ibn Rochd sports complex in the district of Yaacoub El Mansour (Prefecture of Rabat).
