KUWAIT CITY, Jan 5: Kuwait’s Ministry of Health announced that people who are above 50 years of age and had two shots of Covid-19 vaccine are able to receive a booster jab without a prior appointment starting Monday. Younger people have to book an appointment for receiving the booster dose, spokesman of the Ministry Dr. Abdullah Al-Sanad told a press conference on Sunday.

Very few visit the vaccination center for booster shots as prior appointment is required for the people less than 50 years of age.

Vaccination is available at the medical centers of Jaber Bridge, Mishref and Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh youth center as well as public hospitals countrywide, he said. Dr. Al-Sanad noted that 115,024 people have got the booster jab over the last week, bringing the overall to 461,693. (KUNA)
