The country's Ministry of Health has issued a permit Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, will be vaccinated against COVID-19 with an Iranian-made vaccine in the coming days, Mehr reported.
The country's Ministry of Health has issued a permit for the emergency use of COV-Iran Barekat.
This vaccine is the result of the efforts of young Iranian scientists and creates a high level of immunity. Ayatollah Khamenei set two conditions for vaccination; firstly, vaccination will not be carried out out of turn, and secondly, the vaccine must be Iranian.
That was the reason he refused to get a foreign vaccine when people over 80 began to vaccinate people in Iran.
