Kuwait will receive its first batch of Corona Vaccine early next year, revealed government sources.
The first batch of the vaccine, which comprises at least one million doses will be delivered to nationals. This will be followed by other categories including health workers, elderly, front-line workers and people with chronic diseases.
Quoting sources, the vaccine will be from three companies that have successful and safe experiences, and a deal has been agreed for the same.
However, receiving the vaccine will be on voluntary basis and will not be compulsory.
The Government official spokesperson, Tariq Al-Muzrim, the Council of Ministers decided to form a committee headed by the Health Minister and the members from concerned authorities. They prepare and implement an appropriate mechanism for vaccination, taking into account the health requirements, rules and precautionary measures to maintain health security.
