The National Taskforce for Combating Coronavirus held a press conference yesterday where Lieutenant Colonel Dr Manaf Al Qahtani put the current vaccination numbers into perspective. As it stands, more than 60% of the adult population has received the first dose of the COVID vaccine – 47% of which have received the second.
The current target is set at vaccinating between 50% to 60% with both doses by May and moving forward from there. You can find the full press briefing below:
