Primary Health Centers
Patients who received their first dose in a health center will be booked into the same health center for their second dose.
Patients who received their first dose at a health center in the last 20 days and were referred to a drive-through vaccination center for their second dose, will receive an SMS to reschedule the appointment at a PHCC health center.
People visiting the center without a fixed/scheduled appointment will not be vaccinated.
Patients will be requested to show their Ehteraz status as green, their vaccination card, and QID before vaccination.
Drive- through vaccination centers in Lusail and Al Wakra
Referral to a drive-through center for the second dose will only be for patients who received their first dose at QNCC.
Patients will receive an SMS specifying the time slot during which they can visit the drive-through for their second vaccine.
No second doses will be given before the due date, varying for the Pfizer/BioNTech (21 days) and Moderna (28 days) vaccine based on the date of receiving the first dose.
Patients visiting the drive-through vaccination centers will be required to arrive in their own vehicles or a taxi as people arriving in buses or on foot will not be allowed to receive their second dose.
Please note that you will be required to present your QID, vaccination card, and have the green status on the Ehteraz app.
Moreover, patients who have missed the scheduled time of their second dose will receive an SMS with a rescheduled appointment at a PHCC health center.
MoPH urges the public to follow the precautionary measures set in place in support of the largest vaccination program in the history of Qatar.
