The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) will open a vaccination center in Umm Salal to provide booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine for eligible individuals.
According to the Director of Public Health at MoPH, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Al Thani, Qatar has one of the lowest death rates due to corona around the world.
“The vaccination rate has exceeded 85 percent so far, and this is a good indicator for the fans who will attend during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022,” he added.

The vaccination appointments can also be made via PHCC's mobile app, Nar'aakom.
