Saudi: COVID-19 booster dose required to maintain fully vaccinated status
People in Saudi Arabia will be required to receive a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine eight months after getting double-jabbed to maintain their vaccinated status.
As of February 1, 2022, adults aged 18 and above will need to have a booster dose in order to keep their fully vaccinated status on the Tawakkalna application.
Having a fully vaccinated status on the app allows people to do the following:
- Take part in any economic, commercial, cultural, sports or tourist activity.
- Attend any cultural, scientific, social or recreational event.
- Enter any governmental or private establishment.
- Travel on planes and public transport.
Those exempt from taking the vaccine against coronavirus as listed on the app do not need to take the booster dose
