Afghanistan launched its vaccination campaign against the coronavirus pandemic on Tuesday last week, with representatives from healthcare, media and Afghan forces receiving the first shots.

Following the capital, the vaccine campaign was kicked off in other provinces.

According to health ministry’s data, at least 4,634 people have been vaccinated since the start of the vaccination drive.

The ministry said as many as 2,238 healthcare workers, including 533 women, have been inoculated within the past 24 hours.

Earlier this month, the south Asian country torn by decades-long war and violence which have devastated its healthcare infrastructure received 500,000 doses of AstraZeneca/Oxford University vaccine developed by Serum Institute of India for low- and mid-income nations.

The vaccine shots were first in the country which will immunize 250,000 people.
