Following the launch of the third dose of COVID-19 vaccines, Morocco was able to administer 181,700 of them, as of the time of this writing. An assessment that encourages greater civilian mobilization. In any case, this is the opinion of Scientific Committee member Azzedine Ibrahimi, who felt the need to publish a new post on Facebook to address the citizens directly and, in particular the most skeptical of them, to join them.

According to the expert, several reasons explain the use of additional doses, the most important of which is the risk of mortality. “80% of people who died of Covid-19 succumbed to the virus six months after receiving the second dose,” he said, attributing this to a sharp drop in immunity after six months.

Regarding the vaccine used, a member of the scientific committee, the chairman of the Biotechnology Laboratory at the Faculty of Medicine in Rabat, could not be clear: there is no harm in having a separate vaccine by injection during the first two. Appointment.

“I would recommend the use of Pfizer for people vaccinated with AstraZeneca, on the other hand, for those vaccinated by SinoPharm to choose a free vaccine”, recommended Mr. Ibrahimi, who, according to him, has a mix of vaccines. Allows strengthen immunity in a more remarkable way.

A few days before the start of autumn, the debate over vaccination against seasonal influenza re-emerges as usual in public debate. So there is a fear of risk among vulnerable people taking flu vaccine and vaccine against COVID-19 at the same time. Azzeddin Ibrahimi said that this fear is not scientifically justified, as nothing prevents two vaccines from being taken at the same time.
