This assistance will be provided through the World Health Organization (WHO) COVAX program. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters that the group would “support and facilitate” the vaccination drive conducted via health centres.

The scheme will provide at least 2 billion doses of the coronavirus to 91 poor and middle-income countries by the end of this year. More than 54,800 infections have been registered in Afghanistan, while the deadly virus disease has so far killed 2,390 people in the country.
