Lawyer files lawsuit for damages in not getting AstraZeneca/Oxford second dose

KUWAIT CITY, June 7: Lawyer Fadhel Al- Basman filed a lawsuit with the Administrative Court against His Highness the Prime Minister and the Minister of Health, in their capacities, for the damages resulting from not receiving the second dose of the Oxford vaccine. The court has set the session of July 17 to hear the case. In his lawsuit, Lawyer Al-Basman demanded a temporary material and moral compensation of KD 5,001 for the damages he, as well as other citizens and expats, sustained from not receiving the second dose of AstraZeneca/Oxford COVID-19 vaccine like those who received two doses of the Pfizer vaccine.

He said he considers this as a violation of the provisions of the Constitution related to equality among citizens and guarantee of treatment. Lawyer Al-Basman explained that he received the first dose of the approved Oxford vaccine against the COVID-19 virus on February 4. The date for his second dose was set on March 4. However, until the date of filing this lawsuit, he had not received the second dose. By Jaber Al-Hamoud Al-Seyassah Staff and Agencies
