‘Outreach’ to unvaccinated

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 5: At a time the health authorities are striving to continue improving the epidemiological situation and to protect the country from the new coronavirus variant omicron, the Corona Emergency Committee, in coordination with other concerned authorities, is seeking to establish a communication mechanism with those who refrained from taking the vaccine — about 18 percent of the population, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting sources. Sources clarified the percentage of those who rejected vaccination in the country is within the normal range.

Sources affirmed there have been attempts to change these people’s perception about vaccination; indicating that the number of those who took the booster dose of corona vaccine reached more than 230,000 citizens and expatriates. Sources stressed that governmental efforts to speed up the pace of administering the booster dose were doubled after the immunity of those vaccinated with the two doses decreased. Sources said the Corona Emergency Committee has been sending messages (SMS) to citizens and expatriates who completed the required vaccine doses six months ago or more, urging them to take the booster dose.
