Trained IOM community mobilizers, accompanied by medical teams provided the migrants with critical information on COVID-19 vaccines, including its importance, dosage, side effects and addressed questions and concerns related to the vaccination processes. During the eighth week, 1,031 people (974 migrants and 57 Libyans) have received either Sinopharm or AstraZeneca vaccines.
