The Representative of World Health Organization (WHO) in Libya, Elizabeth Hoff, took the Coronavirus vaccine, along with other WHO office in Libya's workers, as part of the start of the Libyan national vaccination campaign in Tripoli.
Hoff said she was happy to see the vaccination campaign start in Libya, adding in a video statement on Facebook Sunday that she was looking forward to seeing all health workers and first responders, especially those working at the quarantine centers, take the vaccine.
She also said that she liked the keenness and professionalism of the Libyan National Center for Disease Control, adding that the vaccines arrived last Thursday and the center started work on Saturday.
"Vaccines are a good tool to use against the Coronavirus, yet we should keep wearing masks and maintain social distance. Taking the Covid-19 vaccine doesn't mean we can stop being careful." Hoff said.
The Libyan Prime Minister Abdul-Hamid Dbeibah and Health Minister Ali Al-Zenati, as well as the deputy head of the Presidential Council Mossa Al-Koni, all took the vaccine on Saturday, announcing the start of the vaccination campaign in the country.
