KUWAIT, Dec 10 (KUNA) -- Spokesman of the Ministry of Health said the Ministry has launched a campaign for online registration for vaccination against the novel coronavirus (Covid-19).
The new service is available via a link on the Ministry's website, Dr. Abdullah Al-Sanad said in statements to KUNA on Thursday evening.
"As part of preparation for the vaccination campaign, the Ministry developed an operating mechanism and a detailed plan outlining the segments of the public who have priority access to the vaccine," he noted.
"Early registration does not necessarily lead to early vaccination or priority; it only provides the Ministry with the data that could help identify the prioritized segments of the public and the required quantity and distribution of the vaccine.
"It can help conduct the vaccination in an easy and orderly way, taking into account of the numbers of citizens and foreign residents, including illegal residents," Dr. Al-Sanad explained.
The public vaccination campaign targets everybody and will be conducted in coordination with all competent state bodies, he said, voicing hope that all people will register in the coming few days. (end)
