The Ministry of Public Health has announced that 510,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered since the start of the COVID-19 National Vaccination Program.

The Ministry stated that the recent availability of greater quantities of both the Moderna and Pfizer and BioNTech vaccines has helped increase the pace of the vaccination programme, with over 100,000 doses being administered each week. This means that every day, around 14,000 of the most vulnerable members of society and essential workers are vaccinated and protected against COVID-19.

Since the beginning of February, the number of doses administered each week has increased by 270% and more than one in seven adults, 15% of Qatar’s adult population, have now received at least one vaccine dose.

Earlier this year, the government of Qatar has launched a drive-through vaccination centre for a more efficient facilitation of the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, located in Lusail, behind the Lusail Multi-Purpose Hall.

People need not have an appointment to avail of the services at the drive-through centre. However, as the centre is only for people receiving their second dose, eligible individuals can only avail of the vaccination services 21 days after their first dose. The date will be given to them after they’ve had their first dose.

Please note that people cannot visit the drive-through centre on any day other than the set date for the second dose.
