Doha: The Ministry of Public Health in Qatar reports that it has successfully provided two doses of COVID-19 vaccination to 80 per cent of its population.
According to the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program’s most recent data, 4,653,019 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been provided since the program’s beginning, and 80 per cent of the total population has now been fully vaccinated with two doses. There were 5,605 doses of COVID-19 vaccination administered in 24 hours.
On December 23, 2020, the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program began using Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, and things have changed for the better. As of May 16, 2021, children between the ages of 12 and 15 will be able to have the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The third vaccination dose has also been administered recently by the authorities.
When it comes to countries with populations over one million, according to the most recent data from ‘Our World in Data,’ a scientific online publication that compiles COVID-19 vaccination data from around the world, Qatar ranks second globally for the percentage of people who have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
Because of the rapid vaccination effort, the number of daily COVID-19 cases in Qatar has been reduced to 82. Among these, there were 52 cases in the community and 30 cases among travellers. In the last 24 hours, 164 persons have recovered from the virus, bringing the total number of cases recovered to 233,116 in Qatar. There have been no new patients brought to intensive care in the last 24 hours, but there are still 18 people in ICU who need medical attention.
