Saudi Arabia begins Covid-19 vaccinations

Saudi health authorities started Thursday vaccinations of citizens and expatriates against Covid-19.

“Today is the beginning of a breakthrough of the crisis in the largest vaccination campaign in the Kingdom’s history,” Minister of Health Dr. Tawfeeq Al-Rabia said in a statement after receiving a jab of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.

“Vaccine is optional and not compulsory,” he said.

Al-Rabiah said the ministry would allocate vaccination centers nationwide.
