As the world continues its battle against the COVID-19 pandemic, getting vaccinated remains the most crucial step individuals can take to protect themselves and their communities. Qatar has been at the forefront of vaccination efforts, offering multiple doses to eligible individuals in a bid to bolster immunity and curb the spread of the virus. If you’re a citizen or resident of Qatar wondering how to get vaccinated, here’s everything you need to know:

Qatar is among the first countries in the world to provide a safe, effective and approved COVID-19 vaccine free for its population, as the largest-ever vaccination campaign was launched across the country on 23 December 2020. To streamline the vaccination campaign, the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) launched an online registration process to allow citizens and residents to register their desire to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose in Qatar

It’s essential to highlight the significance of receiving all eligible doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccination not only provides personal protection but also contributes to the collective effort to achieve herd immunity. Individuals who do not receive the booster dose or delay it significantly may be at a higher risk of severe COVID-19 infection and hospitalization.
