A spokesman for the authority, Dr. Saif Al Dhaheri, said: “Strict measures are being studied soon in all sectors to restrict the movement of people who are not vaccinated, as a step to implement preventive measures, such as not allowing them to enter some places and obtain some services, with the aim of ensuring the health and safety of everyone.” “Your hesitation today is an obstacle to what we aspire to, and it exposes your family, your loved ones, and your community to danger,” he added. Receiving vaccination will contribute to immunizing and protecting this community from this epidemic. ”
