Muscat: His Excellency Dr. Ahmed bin Muhammad Al-Saidi, Minister of Health, explained during a meeting with the Sultanate of Oman TV this evening that registration will start from tomorrow to give the second dose to those who have exceeded 10 weeks of giving them the first dose.
His Excellency said that in the Governorate of Muscat, when the registration was opened on Sunday of last week, there was a possibility to vaccinate 11,000 people in the governorate, who registered to take the vaccination 8,000, and the number of those who attended is 6,000 only.
His Excellency indicated that some listen to rumors and refuse to take vaccination, pointing out that most deaths at the local and international levels are from unvaccinated people.
The minister of health advised people to take information about the safety of the vaccines from reliable sources.
Coronavirus figures were good between mid-October 2020 and mid-January 2021, however with the emergence of the new Delta variant the cases increased alarmingly.
The turnout to vaccination after the Eid holidays was not as good as expected.
Deaths reported in the Sultanate are mostly of those over 60 years old who did not accept vaccination.
There is coordination between the ministry of health and the ministry of education to vaccinate 320,000 students in the age group 12-18 years with the first dose in order to resume students’ attendance at schools in the next term.
“Each country has special criteria related to travel ban, as the Sultanate has restricted travelers from more than 30 countries, and many other countries have been removed from the list.”
The Supreme Committee will hold a meeting on Thursday to take suitable decisions about the future steps related to the restrictions.
