Istanbul, May 7 : Over 10 million Turkish citizens have received both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine as part of the ongoing nationwide vaccination program, the Health Ministry's data showed on Thursday.

Turkey launched the program in mid-January with China's Sinovac vaccine and recently the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was included, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Last week, Turkish authorities also approved Russia's Sputnik V vaccine for emergency use.

The government launched a full lockdown from April 29 to May 17 to curb the spread of the virus.
