The Ministry of Public Health has announced, on its Twitter page, a change to the current vaccine priority group eligibility criteria adding teachers and school administration staff to the list as Qatar expands its National COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.

To accommodate this drive, the Primary Health Care Corporation has opened a mass vaccination centre at the Qatar National Convention Centre to roll out COVID-19 vaccinations to teachers and school administration staff.

To ensure the safety of the community, invitations for appointments will be delivered in a phased approach. Teachers and school administration staff will receive an SMS inviting them to attend the vaccination centre during dedicated time slots. Vaccinations will be administered only to those that received an invite; others are requested to wait till they receive an SMS invite.
