Iran is scheduled to import some 10 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine soon to vaccinate students against the pandemic, according to the Head of the Iranian Red Crescent Society Karim Hemmati. 

Speaking during a televised speech, Hemmati said that students aged 12 -18 will be vaccinated.

He said that the decision to vaccinate students is being taken due to concerns of President Ebrahim Raisi about the health of students as the country is close to the new school year.

Iran gave out a record of over one million Covid-19 vaccines in a single day after it received large shipments of the Chinese Sinopharm to immunize its population of 85 million people.

In the past 24 hours, the Health Ministry administered 1.112 million coronavirus vaccines, bringing the total number of shots given to 31.450 million, ISNA reported on September 8.

So far, some 20.5 million people have received a first dose and 10.8 million people have been fully vaccinated.
