Bahrain committed to protecting health of citizens, residents

The Kingdom’s efforts to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), not only through diagnosis, care and treatment, but also through the provision of vaccines, out of its belief in the need to protect the health and safety of its human resources, its main assets.


Indeed, His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa’s directives to launch the national vaccination campaign confirm the top priority given to the health and safety of the citizens under all circumstances.


Recently, His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince and Prime Minister, announced, while chairing the Government Executive Committee meeting, that, in line with HM the King’s directives, a safe vaccine would be provided free of charge to all citizens and residents within the kingdom.


During its meeting, the Executive Committee discussed plans and preparations aimed at providing a COVID-19 vaccine free of charge across 27 medical centres. These plans include vaccinating those over the age of 18, with a capacity of vaccinating five thousand individuals per day, and working to expand this programme to reach ten thousand vaccinations per day.


The Kingdom is one of the most prominent countries that provide basic vaccinations for all segments of society, out of its keenness to prevent infectious diseases and protect everyone against epidemic viruses.


Bahrain has adopted this approach for decades for the aim of confronting epidemic diseases of all kinds, reducing their spread rates, and eradicating them almost completely towards a society whose members enjoy health and wellness.
