Saudi: Free COVID-19 vaccines in pharmacies

Saudi Arabia will provide coronavirus vaccines in pharmacies across the Kingdom for free, the country’s Minister of Health Dr. Tawfik Al Rabiah said, according to Al Arabiya.

“This step comes as part of the Kingdom’s efforts to expand the ongoing inoculation campaign and facilitate access to vaccine sites," the minister added.

Over 100 vaccination centers have opened around the country since Saudi Arabia began its nationwide vaccination campaign on December 17, the ministry said on Tuesday.

Several universities across Saudi Arabia are preparing to open coronavirus vaccination centers as part of efforts to support the Kingdom’s inoculation drive, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported last week

Vaccines will be available at the universities for faculty members and their family members, as well as the general public.
