MoPH opens second drive-through COVID-19 vaccination center in Al Wakra
Qatar has been successfully running its National COVID-19 Vaccination Program since December 2020.
As of Sunday, March 21, 2021, 18.2 percent of the adult population (16 years and above) in Qatar had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that a second drive-through COVID-19 vaccination center will open in Al Wakra.
Al Wakra drive-through center is located behind Al Janoub Stadium. The drive-through center is open from 11:00 am till 10:00 pm throughout the week and the last entrance to receive the dose is at 9:00 pm.
Its opening represents an important vaccination program where the center provides the second dose of vaccine to eligible people.
Individuals who wish to receive their second dose at the center will be attended to on a first-come-first-serve basis.
“The Al Wakra COVID-19 Drive-Through Vaccination Center will operate in the same manner as the Lusail Center, with both facilities catering for people receiving their second dose of either the Pfizer and BioNTech or Moderna vaccine”, according to Dr. Abdullatif Al Khal, Chair of the National Health Strategic Group on COVID-19 and Head of Infectious Diseases at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).
HE Minister of Public Health Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari has praised the great efforts made by Qatar to expand the national vaccination program against COVID-19 and said more than 130,000 vaccine doses are now being administered in a week in more than 35 vaccination sites across Qatar.
