The Saudi Ministry of Health announced the possibility of rescheduling the vaccination for those registered to take the first dose of the “Pfizer” vaccine, for reasons beyond the ministry’s control.

The ministry said in a statement: “In view of the delay in supplying the Corona vaccine from the producing company to the Kingdom and all countries of the world that export to it, and because of the suspension of its factory to expand production lines, it was decided to reschedule the receipt of the vaccine in the Kingdom.”

She added: “We continue to implement the national campaign for vaccination with the Corona vaccine and expand the launch of more vaccine centers to include all regions of the Kingdom, to maintain the health and safety of citizens and residents and limit the spread of the Corona virus.”

On December 17, Saudi Arabia launched a mass vaccination campaign for the Kingdom’s population against Coronavirus infection, with a vaccine developed by the American “Pfizer” and the German “Biontech” company.
