Children are more likely to be infected than adults
The Ministry of Health has said that priority will be given to those most at risk of contracting Kovid in this category. The Ministry of Health had yesterday announced that the Kovid vaccine would be given immediately to children between the ages of five and eleven. “Children with Kovid have only minor symptoms,” he said. Aziri said. Only a small number of people showed serious symptoms before being admitted to the hospital. He added that no side effects have been reported for children who have already received the vaccine dose in the country.
The vaccine will be delivered to as many children as possible
The Ministry of Health aims to provide vaccination to as many children as possible. This is in view of the increased risk of transmission of the disease to adults in the home through children. He added that the vaccination campaign will continue until the Kovid outbreak is completely eradicated. He added that although the covid virus may persist among us like fever, its severity is likely to decrease over time.
The booster dose interval was reduced to three months
The need for a booster dose has increased with the proliferation of Omicron. Previous studies have shown that two doses of the vaccine do not prevent this. At the same time, he said, those who took the two-dose vaccine did not find it to cause any significant problems. It has already been proven that those who take the second dose lose their immunity over time. That is why the interval for booster dose has been reduced from six months to three months and everyone should come forward to take it, he said. Currently, only Pfizer biotech vaccine for booster dose is available in the country. Both doses are given in combination with other vaccinations, but the booster dose is the Pfizer vaccine. Saudi Arabia has made the booster dose mandatory for public access and travel from February 2022.
