Djibouti rolls out COVID-19 vaccinations for migrants

Migrants in Djibouti are being vaccinated against COVID-19 for the first time, as the International Organization for Migration (IOM) works with the Government to support the national immunization effort.

Since the start of the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out globally, IOM has been advocating for the inclusion of migrants and Djibouti is one of the first countries in the region to initiate a campaign for them.

A statement from IOM says around 70 migrants have received jabs since the vaccination drive began on 12 October and it will continue till at least the end of the year.
