More than 320,000 people have visited the drive-through centers for their second dose vaccines, but with summer temperatures continuing to rise, conditions have become very challenging for staff and service users.
Dr. Mariam Abdulmalik, Managing Director of Primary Healthcare Corporation, said: “The vaccination center at the Qatar National Convention Center was initially set up to prioritize the vaccination of teachers and school staff. Since opening in February, more than 600,000 people – teachers, school staff and many other eligible members of the community - have been vaccinated at the center.”
“With the new Qatar Vaccination Center – for Business and Industry Sector providing capacity for more than 25,000 doses a day, and continuing capacity for 15,000 doses a day across our 27 health centers, the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program maintains capacity for up to 40,000 doses a day,” explained Dr. Abdulmalik.
