After the meeting chaired by Minister, the statement came. Minister, “All our citizens aged 18 and over who have had the mRNA vaccine and who have been 6 months over can have the reminder dose vaccines in Turkey are starting tomorrow 12 November 2021 (today).” he used his statements. Minister said, “The proportion of our school-aged children in the 8-16 age group among the total cases has decreased by about 10 percent.” he shared his knowledge.


Minister of Health Turkish health minister made the statement is as follows: All our citizens over the age of 18 can have reminder dose vaccines starting from tomorrow (today). Our Coronavirus Scientific Committee met today with the status of our citizens in the risk group, the course of the epidemic and the vaccination program agenda. I would like to list the important results discussed at our meeting:

1. Taking into account the age distribution of the number of cases and the age distribution of the deaths, 15% of the cases in the last 1 month are made up of our citizens over the age of 60. However, 84.8% of the deaths are our citizens over the age of 60. Our obligation to protect our elders still continues. Although young people have a milder disease, they can carry the virus to people who may have a heavier disease. In addition, the main protective effect of vaccines is in the prevention of hospitalizations and deaths. It is vital that our young people comply with the measures to protect our elders.

2. It has been determined that vaccines show the most protective properties between the ages of 3 and 6 months In this regard, it is necessary to make reminder dose vaccinations. Previously, reminder dose vaccinations had been started for our citizens over the age of 60. At the evaluation held today, it was decided to start the reminder dose vaccination for all our citizens over the age of 18. As of tomorrow (today), our citizens aged 18 and over who have had the mRNA vaccine and 6 months have passed will be able to get the reminder dose of the type of vaccine they want.

The coronavirus table and the vaccine map have been announced! Cases for 11 November, 2021, General Turkey

  • Total Number of Vaccines Applied: 117.879.861
  • Number of People Who Received 1st Dose: 55.729.848
  • Number of People Who Received 2nd Dose: 49.411.512

The table is updated in every two minutes. Last update time: 11 November 2021, Thursday 04:21


3. Our domestic Turkish covid-19 vaccine Turkovac made in Turkey was also an important issue on our agenda. I have previously invited you to volunteer to get our own vaccine available, and I have stated that our domestic vaccine can be mass-produced with 3,000 volunteers. I would like to thank our citizens who volunteered very much and to announce that we have reached the number of 2,000 volunteers as of today. Currently, 1,000 volunteers are needed. Our own vaccine is our own strength. In order to realize this power, Our healthy foreigner residency and Turkish citizens aged 18-59 who have had 2 doses of the vaccine to become Turkovac volunteers for a reminder dose.


4. The proportion of our Turkish school-aged children in the 8-16 age group among the total cases has decreased by about 10%. The fact that the proportion of our school-age children in cases is decreasing will have a positive impact on the course of the epidemic.

5. The fact that the daily case numbers in Turkey do not show rapid climbs ensures that the burden of health facilities remains controllable. The controlled course of service and intensive care bed occupancy rates in our hospitals is an important assurance.
