The Ministry of Public health (MoPH) has announced that it has set up a scheduling unit to offer support for vaccination of main service workers. Yesterday it said that most of the key industries which will see lifting of restrictions need the employees to be fully vaccinated.
In order to support the gradual easing of the current imposed restrictions in the country, it will be essential that workers in the service industries are safe from this deadly virus. Hence, to facilitate this, the health ministry has set up a COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduling Unit (VSU) for the vaccination of business workers in support of the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program.
 
In the a post, the ministry said: “The Unit supports the vaccination of workers in all businesses, but prioritization would be given to key businesses that are in direct contact with the rest of the community such as barber and hairdresser salons, restaurants, retail shops, supermarkets, hotels and other hospitality services.”
Businesses and not individuals can contact the Unit directly to schedule vaccination appointments for their staff: VCIA@hamad.qa
This vaccination service has already started, and tens of thousands of workers have been vaccinated so far in Qatar.
