Qatar this week opened the new Qatar Vaccination Center – for Business and Industry Sector, one of the largest vaccination centres in the world. The centre is located near Asian Town in Mesaimeer.
The new facility is the result of the collaboration between the Ministry of Public Health, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC), and Qatar Charity, with support from the Ministry of Interior and ConocoPhillips-Qatar. The centre is one of the multiple vaccination centres established to ensure Qatar’s vaccination programme is delivered at speed.
HMC Senior Consultant and lead for the new Qatar Vaccination Center, Dr Khalid Abdulnoor said the new centre is dedicated to vaccinating key business and industry workers who play an important role in supporting the safe roll-out of Qatar’s phased plan to lift COVID-19 restrictions.
Covering more than 300,000 square metres, this is probably the largest vaccination centre in the world, with more than 300 vaccination stations and 700 staff providing the capacity to administer more than 25,000 doses a day.
To date, over 300,000 business and industry workers have already been vaccinated as part of the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program, with many of these individuals receiving their vaccination at the Vaccination Center in the Industrial Area.
The COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduling Unit is also set up to support the booking and appointment process at the new vaccination centre. Businesses can schedule vaccination appointments for their staff by sending an email to [email protected].
PHCC to close operation of other vaccination centres
With the opening of the new Qatar Vaccination Center – for Business and Industry Sector significantly boosting the capacity of the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program, the two drive-through vaccination centres and the vaccination centre at the Qatar National Convention Center will close throughout the remainder of June.
