Tunisia received from France 300,000 vaccine doses that arrived on Monday via the Tunis-Carthage international airport.
The batch is part of the 800,000 vaccine doses the French government said will grant to Tunisia to support the government's efforts in combating the spread of COVID, accelerating the vaccination drive and limiting the pandemic's impact.
Last week, France also sent 324,000 AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine doses to Tunsia.
Tunisian Health Minister Faouzi Mehdi announced Monday during a press conference that 29 centers were set across the country to vaccinate those aged 18 and over.
According to the latest official data, 2,385,176 vaccines have been administered since the launch of the national jab drive in March, including 153,052 first shots and 802,124 boosters.
