News Details

The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) announced that in order to protect the health and safety of the population, it was decided to amend the duration of acquired immunity from vaccines against Coronavirus (Covid-19) from 12 months to 9 months from the date of receiving the second dose of the vaccine, based on what studies have shown. The new medical report indicated that the protective immunity against the “Covid-19” virus infection, acquired from vaccines, begins to decline six months after receiving the second dose.

The ministry indicated that this procedure will be implemented from the first of February of next year 2022, as people who have exceeded the period of 9 months after receiving the second dose of the anti-Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccines approved in the country will be considered not immune, and therefore they will be automatically considered Cancellation of the golden frame in their “Ehteraz” application, indicating that the golden frame will continue for an additional nine months in the application in the event that these people receive the third booster dose.

This aligns with the protective actions being taken by other countries in the region and the world, to address the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
