Arab News

RIYADH: Saudi Arabia’s health ministry announced on Friday that 39 million doses of coronavirus vaccine have been administered in the Kingdom.

The ministry said that 587 centers across all regions of the Kingdom processed the inoculations.

Those who have not yet received a vaccine were urged to get one.

Vaccines approved in the Kingdom include Oxford-AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Sinovac, and Sinopharm.

Mixing any of the vaccines approved in the Kingdom is safe and effective, the ministry said on Tuesday.

In June, the Saudi public health authority authorized the mixing of vaccine types and said the technique likely provided a better immune reaction.

At the current pace of inoculations, Saudi Arabia is expected to have 70 percent of those eligible jabbed by early October.

Saudi Arabia announced 103 new infections on Thursday, and six more deaths.
