DUBAI: Oman’s 18-plus population would now be allowed to book boosters in a bid to counter the spread of the omicron COVID-19 variant. 

The Ministry of Health will announce the target segments and the action plan at a later stage, according to a statement by Oman’s state news agency. 

“Epidemiological reports and analyses about the situation in the Sultanate of Oman point to a minor increase in positive cases, with hospitalizations and intensive care cases maintaining low rates,” the statement said, adding that 93 percent of the target population has already received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
