Vaccination for COVID-19 won’t be mandatory in Qatar: Official

The COVID-19 vaccination will not be mandatory in Qatar, according to a senior official at the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH).
In an interview with Qatar TV, Dr Soha Al Bayat, the head of vaccination at MoPH, expressed hope that the public would choose to take the vaccine to protect themselves and the community, highlighting the level of awareness about the pandemic among the public.
Three vaccine candidates — AstraZeneca, Pfizer and BioNTech, and Moderna — appear to be promising vital tools to curtain the pandemic. Dr Al Bayat said emerging reports suggest the effectiveness of these vaccine candidates range between 90 and 95 percent. (TNN)
