RIYADH: 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.

Having a fully vaccinated status on the app allows people to do the following:

Those exempt from taking the vaccine against coronavirus as listed on the app do not need to take the booster dose.

The source stressed the need for everyone to adhere to all precautionary and preventive measures and approved health protocols.
