KUWAIT CITY, July 24: Several health centers in Kuwait witnessed crowding and chaos after a message was posted on the social media that people who are not yet vaccinated can receive their dose from 7:00 to 9 pm. However, the Ministry of Health in issuing a denial said only those who have received the message for vaccination will be entertained, reports Al- Seyassah daily.
In the same context, a video clip showed crowding and chaos at the Farwaniya Hospital including those who had received messages to receive the vaccine. Meanwhile, the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Mustafa Redha, said the aim of the ministry is to vaccinate between 70 to 75 percent of the total population against the coronavirus, to achieve herd immunity. He added this depends on the quantities of vaccines supplied by the producing companies, pointing out that the vaccination is for age groups between 12 and 15 years and that the process is gradual. Dr Redha thanked the medical and support staff for their efforts to make the national vaccination campaign a success, and to assist the Ministry of Health in combating the Corona pandemic.
