Summary

As part of the national COVID-19 vaccination campaign led by the Libyan National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), IOM conducted awareness-raising sessions on COVID-19 vaccines for a total of 200 adult migrants in community settings in three municipalities during the tenth week. 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 tenth week, 320 people (193 migrants and 127 Libyans) have received either Sinopharm or AstraZeneca vaccines.
