All Qatar residents to get COVID vaccine for free
Doctor Al Khal announced yesterday that the Ministry of Public Health has signed an agreement with Pfizer and bioNTech to supply Qatar with vaccine.
The vaccine should complete trials in around a months’ time. And limited quantities could be available as early as December if things go as planned. Priority will initially be given to the most vulnerable categories of people such as the elderly and those suffering from chronic disease. Over time, more and more quantities of the vaccine will be available to provide for all, said Doctor Al Khal.
The Ministry of Interior launches automatic RP renewal facilities for companies.
The automatic residency renewal facility is in line with the MoI’s recently launched concept to provide ‘Zero Click’ services to companies in Qatar.
Once a company has registered through Metrash2, the service will automatically renew residency for employees. And send IDs to the company on a monthly basis, without human interaction.
