Muscat: The 20th Press Conference of the Supreme Committee on #Covid-19 , Thursday , 10 December 2020

H.E Dr. Ahmed Mohammed Al Saeedi

Minister of Health, Member of the Supreme Committee on Covid-19

1, The vaccine will be free for the target groups, namely the elderly over the age of 65, those with diabetes, those with kidney failure, those undergoing dialysis, those with chronic lung diseases, health workers in intensive care, and workers in the Covid-19 wards.

2, There are priorities set for those who are eligible for the vaccine in all countries, and if the vaccine is made available in the Sultanate, then the priority groups for the vaccine will be free of charge.

3, There is no law that compels anyone to take any vaccination other than childhood vaccinations, and the decision to take the vaccine is up to the individual’s decision, and we rely on community awareness.

4, The decision to exempt from work is left to the chronically ill persons to the heads of the concerned units to decide according to the case data.

5, Monitor the epidemiological situation in the Sultanate before making any decision regarding the return of students from schools, universities, colleges and institutes.

6, The stages through which the vaccine goes through are the same stages that all vaccines go through without compromising safety.

7, Unfortunately, there are clips and comments about the vaccine from some predators, and these are irresponsible comments.

8, Health insurance must be obtained before traveling.

9, We do not have any evidence or confirmation that there was a death due to the vaccine.

10, A mechanism has been set up for the distribution of vaccines to the various governorates of the Sultanate, if it arrives.
