Saudi to only consider double-jabbed individuals as “immunized”

Only those who have taken two doses of COVID-19 vaccine will be considered immunized starting Oct. 10, the Ministry of Health said on Sunday.

The update follows a recent decision from authorities requiring double vaccination to attend any economic, commercial, cultural, entertainment, sport, or tourism activity in Saudi Arabia starting from 6 a.m. on Oct. 10. 

Tawakkalna was launched last year to help track COVID-19 infections. It has since  updated to include vaccination information and infection status, while also functioning as a COVID-19 “passport.”
