The global Covidvax website for tracking Covid-19 vaccinations expected Libya to get 70% of its population vaccinated with two doses by the midst of August 2022.

According to the Covidvax.live data, the vaccine doses currently at rate are about 11 doses per 100 people, which means an average of more than 23 thousand doses per day.

The report shows that as of August 6, more than 755,000 people in Libya have received their jab. That is 11% of the total population of 6.87 million people.

Last Wednesday, the Director of the Vaccination Department at the National Center for Disease Control, Abdulbasit Samio, confirmed that more than 713,000 doses were injected nationally, noting that centres are open to all, even those who have not registered for vaccination yet.
