Over 300,000 people have registered for receiving the vaccine against COVID-19 in Saudi Arabia since registration opened in the kingdom on Tuesday, a health official said.
The kingdom started vaccinations Thursday against the diseases after receiving two batches of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19.
The Saudi Health Ministry announced the start of registration for the COVID-19 vaccine for all citizens and expatriates in the kingdom through the smart app “Sehhaty” by visiting http://onelink.to/yjc3nj.

The vaccination campaign will be launched in all regions of the kingdom next month, he told Saudi television Al Ekhbariya.
