The first batch of COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer will come before the end of this month, according to Dr. Abdel-Wahab Al-Musleh, Advisor to the Minister of Public Health for Sports and Emergency Affairs, speaking to Al-Kass channel Sunday evening.
He explained that the groups that will be given priority include the elderly, those with chronic diseases, and the frontliners who deal every day with Coronavirus patients, as reported in Al Sharq.
Dr. Al-Musleh said during the program that the demand is much more than the offer in the world, but Qatar has guaranteed the purchase of vaccines for all the people, God willing, but it will come gradually in the coming months.
Regarding the dosage of the vaccine, Dr. Abdel-Wahab Al-Musleh explained that the vaccine will be given in two doses, 3 weeks apart.
When asked whether the vaccination will be optional or compulsory, the doctor responded that like anywhere in the world, vaccines are not compulsory however there may be situations wherein vaccination might be required. He cited entering stadiums and travel as examples.
