COVID-19 drive-through vaccination center opened in Lusail

By QLNews

A  new COVID-19 drive-through vaccination center opened today in Lusail as part of the efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The vaccination process for visitors in the new center includes registration and assessment, vaccination, and observation.

“Qatar is well on its way in the rollout of its vaccination program and as per our strategy, we are now making drive-through vaccination an option for our population. Our first drive-through PCR testing centers have been very popular and continue to be successful with high visiting volumes.

The opening of the Lusail COVID-19 Drive-Through Vaccination Center will further strengthen our ability to protect Qatar’s population from the threat of the virus,” said Her Excellency Dr. Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, Minister of Public Health.

Its opening represents an important vaccination program where the center provides the second dose of vaccine to eligible people.

Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) operates this center in collaboration with Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC).

Dr. Abdullatif al-Khal, chairman of the National Strategic Health Group (NSHG) on COVID-19 and head of the Infectious Disease Division at HMC said, “the center is designed to provide an easy and comfortable way for the public to get COVID-19 vaccines.

Vaccines are given in confidentiality and in privacy as the center features a tailored vaccination path that cars can drive-through to receive a vaccine while the vaccine receiver remains inside his car for his convenience. This center will contribute to boosting the vaccination program and enable us to vaccinate more community members".

Visitors to the center are undergoing medical evaluation before vaccination, and after receiving the vaccine, they are asked to wait in their cars for a short period in the medical observation area to ensure that they are not exposed to vaccine-related reaction, and a team of paramedics is on-site to assist in case anyone is exposed to any vaccine-related reaction and requires emergency medical support.
