Almost 1 million citizens and expatriates in Kuwait have registered to get vaccinated against COVID-19, local media reported.
Around 500,000 people have since received vaccination, according to health sources.
Kuwait health ministry has announced a plan to expand availability of the vaccine based on giving the shots to new categories including workers of cooperative societies and mosques.
Based on encouraging citizens and foreign residents to get vaccinated at different inoculation centres, the ministry has adopted a two-pronged strategy spread across the country and administering the shots to specific categories at their workplaces.
“This step will kick off once new vaccine supplies reach the country in the next few days with the aim of facilitating and speeding up the inoculation process,” the sources said, referring to the plan to inoculate workers at their employment sites.
