Health workers have administered close to 109 million vaccine doses, including 1,124,596 jabs on Sunday, since vaccination was rolled out nationwide on March 8.

Almost 42 million people have been fully vaccinated.

Health authorities in the country of nearly 98 million people target to fully vaccinate 80 percent of the adults and 100 percent of those aged 12 to under 18 by the end of this year, according to a draft government plan for COVID-19 response in 2021-23.

From 2022 onward, 100 percent of people aged 12 and above will either be fully immunized against the coronavirus or even get booster shots.

Children from three to under 12 years old will be fully inoculated in accordance with World Health Organization guidelines.
