"The rate of people who want to receive the vaccine is noticeably increasing," Seif Al-Badr, a spokesperson for Iraq's Ministry of Health, told Shafaq News.
Moreover, the spokesperson further denied the claims circulating on social media that the Iraqi ministry provided citizens with soon-to-expire COVID-19 vaccines, pointing out that these are "untrue rumors."
