Walk-in booster shots are now available in Qatar as EhTERaz rules have been updated-Doha News

“We invite all members of society to participate in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. As soon as you qualify for the booster effect, be sure to comply with precautionary measures,” Almagid said. The doctor added.

Ehteraz Gold Frame Update

Meanwhile, the ministry has announced a new Ehteraz update linked to booster shots to encourage the community to be fully vaccinated as soon as possible.

Those who received a second dose more than 9 months before February 1, 2022 will be considered incomplete and will lose Gold Flame (immune) status on Ehteraz.

Those who received the booster shot will remain in Gold Frame status for another nine months, the ministry added.

This move occurs after new medical research reveals that coronavirus-protected immunity begins to decline six months after the second dose of the approved vaccine. This has led authorities to change the efficacy of the Covid-19 immune vaccine from 12 months to 9 months from the second dose.

New vaccination center opens

To expand its national vaccination efforts to combat the spread of the virus, Qatar will open a new vaccination center in Bughan for the business and industrial sectors.

The new facility will be open to the public from Sunday, January 9, and will administer the Covid-19 vaccine to workers in key businesses and industries. You can administer the vaccine up to 30,000 times a day.

The ministry said that most of the vaccines given are boosters, but if necessary, first and second doses are also given to eligible people.

However, vaccination against Bugarn is only permitted to those who have a reservation. Walks are not allowed. Vaccination units have been set up to support the booking and booking process at the center.

Companies can schedule staff bookings by sending an email to QVChamad.qa.
