“Some European countries have just started thinking about this,” Raisi added.
Due to the increase in the production of domestic vaccines and the supply of imported ones, the necessary predictions should be made so that even with the injection of the third dose, there was no shortage in this field in the country, he said.
He also stressed, “The only way to stay safe from the new wave of COVID-19 is to follow health protocols and serious monitoring”.

Emphasizing that there should be no shortage of vaccines in the country, the President said, “Considering the increase in domestic vaccine production and the supply of imported vaccines, the necessary predictions should be made so that even with the injection of the third dose, there is no shortage in this field in the country”.
Raisi reiterated the importance of traffic control at land, air and sea borders and the seriousness of quarantine for suspicious cases.
The President Raisi also called for close and intelligent monitoring of the reopening of schools, offices and businesses in order to comply with health protocols to protect the lives of the people.
Referring to the shortage of specialist doctors in the cities, the President said, “In this regard, a working group of proponents and opponents of increasing the recruitment of doctors has been appointed, to examine the existing problems in this field, including the unfair distribution of doctors in the country”.
Expressing the dangers of air pollution, especially in big cities, the President said, “Relevant agencies should seriously address the problem of air pollution and protect the lives of the people”.
Raisi emphasized on avoiding vaccination of children under 12 years old and stated, “This should not be done until accurate research and scientific work has been done in this field and it has been proven, and the government will refrain from anything that has not been tested and approved before”.
