Children in Morocco between 12 to 17 years are now eligible to receive their Covid-19 shots.
According to the World Health Organisation, the North African country has administrated about 33 million doses to adults.
Expanding its vaccination campaign, Morocco is now focusing its efforts on inoculating 3 million Moroccan students to ensure a safe return to schools.
420 vaccination centres including schools have opened across the country to vaccinate the minors from August 31 to October 3.
The campaign will use the Pfizer and Sinopharm vaccines.
The vaccine is not mandatory and parents are the ones deciding if their children will receive the shots.
But those who do not want to vaccinate their children will not be allowed to send them to school and must instead follow a distanced education program.
More than 856,000 coronavirus cases and 12,540 deaths linked to COVID-19 have been registered in the country according to Johns Hopkins University.
