60 years old and above now eligible for COVID-19 vaccine
Doctor Abdullatif Al Khal, chairman of the National Health Strategic Group on COVID-19 Said yesterday “the expansion that has begun today in the COVID-19 vaccination programme, means that we will be able to provide the vaccine to a larger segment of the community, and I invite all people who meet the requirements for vaccination to book appointments for the COVID-19 vaccine at the earliest opportunity“
Online registration opens for COVID-19 vaccination
The Ministry of Public Health has launched a new online registration process that allows citizens and residents to register their desire to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The new online registration form is available at the ministry’s website, and it allows people who meet the requirements for priority groups to request an appointment to receive the vaccine. People who are not yet among the current listed priority categories can also register their desire to receive the vaccine. Their details will be saved by the Ministry of Public Health and they will be sent a notification as soon as they become eligible to receive the vaccine in the future. I will be registering my interest today.
