According to her, Azerbaijan is one of the first countries in the region to start vaccination: “The more people rapidly vaccinated, this will lead to important consequence in the fight against the disease. About 30% of the population has received two doses of vaccine in Azerbaijan so far. However, vaccine alone is not enough.
