While COVID-19 vaccination is free in almost all countries in the world, Rouhani said today: “The private sector can import the vaccine for private or public hospitals through online exchange facilities wherever the Health Ministry determines as appropriate for injections. Even if a large factory, or producer, wants to go and import vaccines for its workers, they can do so in unison.” In other words, with this criminal policy, on the one hand, the clerical regime paves the way for further plundering of the public by the private sector, which is the pseudonym for institutions affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards and Khamenei, and on the other hand, deprives tens of millions of impoverished people of vaccines.
