There are over 500 vaccination centers within the country, and residents can book appointments via the Sehaty app which the government launched to ensure equal access to vaccines.
The country has also expanded the pool of eligible candidates for the vaccine since the registered priority group have all already received their COVID-19 vaccine shots.
