TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei received the second dose of domestically-developed COVIran Barekat coronavirus vaccine on Friday morning.
Ayatollah Khamenei has received the second dose of 'COV-Iran Barakat' COVID-19 vaccine this morning, according to the Leader’s Office.
The Leader of Islamic Revolution had received the first dose of a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine on June 25.
Human injection of the first phase of clinical studies of the first coronavirus vaccine, made by Iranian researchers called COVIran Barekat, began on December 29, 2020.
Iranian scientists and experts have succeeded in developing several vaccines against the coronavirus, despite the cruel sanctions imposed by the US.
The Leader had previously set two conditions for using the coronavirus vaccine: first, that he would not receive the vaccination out of turn; second, that he would only receive an Iranian vaccine.
For this reason, when the first phase of the vaccination of Iranians aged 80 and above started, he did not receive the foreign vaccine and waited for the Iranian one.
