Covid-19 third booster shots are being offered by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) in Qatar to people with immunodeficiency disorders. MoPH has started to contact the people who are eligible to receive the third dose of the vaccine.
“We started from today (Wednesday) contacting the concerned people. We began with 750 kidney transplant patients and they received vaccination messages. In turn, we will send messages to people in other categories eligible for vaccination with the third dose.” said Dr Yousef Al Maslamani, Medical Director of Hamad General Hospital.
“The scientific committee is following everything in the world and there are studies confirming that people suffering from immunodeficiency diseases are unable to deal with the virus in the required manner and are vulnerable to infection and hospitalisation therefore it is necessary for them to receive the third dose,” he added while talking to a Qatari TV programme.
