Minister of Public Health visits new COVID-19 vaccination center in Industrial Area

By QLNews

Qatar has launched a new COVID-19 vaccination center in the Industrial area today. 

The Vaccination Center Industrial Area has been established at the previous Medical Commission facility and is the result of a collaboration between the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH), Hamad Medical Corporation, and Qatar Charity, with support from the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Commerce, and Industry, and ConocoPhillips-Qatar.

“The opening of this center further strengthens the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program, adding to more than 35 vaccination centers across Qatar, and will significantly boost access to COVID-19 vaccines for people living and working in the Doha Industrial Area and surrounding regions. The center will administer first and second-dose vaccinations in line with the national priority groups and enable Qatar to continue expanding the national program which has already administered more than 1,079,000 doses,” said H.E. Dr. Al Kuwari.

The vaccination center will open six days a week from 7 am to 7 pm and operate on a strictly invite-only basis for the following priority groups: People 40 years of age and above regardless of their health conditions; people with moderate chronic medical conditions; and key workers in different industries.

Dr. Khalid Abdulnoor, Senior Consultant Emergency Medicine at HMC and lead for the Vaccination Center Industrial Area, said, “I would like to thank all the partners involved in the preparations over the past few weeks for their support. The opening of the vaccination center will greatly enhance access to vaccines for people in the Doha Industrial Area. With more than 120 vaccination stations set up within the center, the facility has the capacity to vaccinate large numbers of people each day.”

“Access to the vaccination center will be by invitation only and we will not accept any walk-in people. Individuals should bring their QID, health card, or passport with them and must show their green Ehteraz status. The vaccination process will take approximately 30 minutes from the time of arrival at the center and includes a period of observation where medical teams will monitor vaccine recipients for any signs of side effects,” explained Dr. Abdulnoor.

The Vaccination Center Industrial Area becomes the fourth specialist vaccination center to be established to support the delivery of the vaccination program at all 27 primary health centers, following the opening of the vaccination center at Qatar National Convention Center and the two drive-through vaccination centers, in Lusail and Al Wakra.
