  • Coronavirus

Children above the age of 12 will be vaccinated as part of the efforts of the Ministry of Health to stop the spread of COVID-19. The ministry aims to vaccinate 70 percent of its population, a programme which will be implemented in phases in accordance with the National Immunisation Programme.

This is against COVID-19, said Badr bin Saif Al Rawahi, the Director of Infectious Diseases Control at the Ministry of Health. Oman is expected, during the month of June, to receive about 1.25 million vaccine doses, and 1 million doses of the Pfizer jab, and 145,000 of those made by AstraZeneca are expected to arrive.
