Saudi Arabia unveils ‘Health Passport' for coronavirus vaccine recipients
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 07 - 01 - 2021

JEDDAH — Saudi Arabia's Minister of Health Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah and Chairman of Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) Dr. Abdullah Al-Ghamdi launched the "Health Passport" service via Tawakkalna application.
This service aims to confirm that Saudis and expatriates have received all doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and thus become immune to the virus.
The minister also received on Thursday the second dose of the vaccine at the COVID-19 Vaccine Center in Riyadh as part of the vaccination plan being implemented by the Ministry of Health. It was Dr. Al-Rabiah who received the first-ever dose of the vaccine in the Kingdom at the center earlier on Dec. 17.
Dr. Al-Rabiah thanked Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman for their care and continuous interest in preserving the health and safety of citizens and expatriates, as well as on taking all preventive precautions to protect them from coronavirus and stem the spread of the disease.
He also appreciated the keenness of the wise leadership to make available a safe and internationally approved vaccine to citizens and expatriates, saying that this contributed to making the Kingdom one of the best countries in the world in confronting the coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Al-Rabiah called on all members of the Saudi society to adhere to preventive measures and to be careful to wear masks and to register to receive the vaccine.
"Preparations are underway to open more Corona vaccination centers soon so as to cover all regions of the Kingdom," he added.
