The Ministry of Public Health, Qatar released an infographic with details of the first phase of Qatar’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign.

Vaccines are being prioritized for people most at risk of severe complications from the virus:

  1. People aged 70 years of age and above
  2. People with severe chronic conditions
  3. Healthcare workers with repeated exposure to COVID-19

Following details were also mentioned:

  • People who are eligible for the vaccine at this stage will be contacted directly by PHCC by SMS or phone call to arrange their appointment.
  • Soon, eligible community members will be able to call to book an appointment or to do that online.
  • Vaccinations at health centers will only be given to people with pre-arranged appointments.
  • All other community members who do not meet the criteria for the early phase of the campaign are kindly requested to wait until it is their turn.
  • MOPH is working with the pharmaceutical companies to ensure the next shipment of vaccines arrives in Qatar as early as possible in 2021 and everyone who needs to be vaccinated will be able to do so throughout the year.
