Saudi Arabia is studying other COVID-19 vaccines and may register another one before the end of 2020, citing Abdullah Al Asiri, assistant deputy minister for preventive health at the Ministry of Health.

“If the social immunity reaches 80 per cent, we can say that the Kingdom overcame the epidemic,” Al Asiri said.

He added that the vaccination for the first high-risk group may take one to two months, and then the other groups will be vaccinated.
