Starting Sunday, January 17, 2021, the Ministry of Public Health's new online registration form for the covid-19 vaccine is open to citizens and residents who want to register their desire to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The new website registration process will allow people who meet the requirements for priority groups to request an appointment to receive the vaccine.

People who are NOT among the priority categories currently listed can also register their desire to receive the vaccine and their details will be saved by MOPH and they will be sent a notification as soon as they become eligible for the vaccine in the future.

Upon successful login, your NAS details will reflect on the information page. You'll be asked to input your other details for:

  • Occupation
  • Employer
  • Health Card (HC) Number

3. Answer the following questions

After submitting your information, you'll be asked if you have had any severe allergic reactions, if you're currently pregnant or breastfeeding if you're currently in isolation because you tested positive for COVID-19, and if you have received plasma treatment for COVID-19 within the last 90 days.

According to the Ministry of Public Health, "there are certain situations in which precaution should be taken before taking the vaccine. In these cases, you should discuss with your healthcare provider to understand if and when you should take the vaccine."

4. Select if you belong to the first and second Priority Groups

The COVID-19 vaccines are prioritized for certain population groups, but eventually, everyone who wants to take the vaccine will be able to. This is because certain population groups are at higher risk and it is, therefore, more important for these groups to receive the vaccine as soon as it is available, according to MoPH.

First Group

  • All adults age 60 years and older
  • Older adults at long-term care facilities/home care
  • People with severe or multiple chronic conditions that put them at highest risk; priority for those 50 years old and above
  • Healthcare workers who work at COVID-19 facilities and isolation facilities
  • Healthcare workers providing care for patients at ICU/long-term care facilities/home care
  • Essential first responders/workers (EMS Emergency Medical Service, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defense, Oil& Gas Sector)
  • Teachers and Healthcare workers at high risk due to age or chronic conditions
  • Public Health Teams involved with contact tracing

Second Group

  • All adults 50-59 years old
  • Adults of any age who have medical conditions that put them at higher risk of having severe disease
  • Any healthcare workers and essential workers
  • Teachers

If you're included in the First and Second group, you'll be able to choose your preferred health center, date, and time for the COVID-19 vaccination. The health center for vaccination is not guaranteed unless you have received confirmation in your email. You'll also get a Request Number after the registration process.

What if you don't belong in the above priority groups?

The Ministry of Public Health will record your interest to take the vaccine, and you will be contacted when you are eligible.

You'll see a pop-up saying your registration has been successful.
