Kuwait’s’ Health Ministry spent $17 billion to buy medicines at exorbitant prices during pandemic

Kuwait’s COVID-19 vaccination drive will be almost complete by September, with the 850,000 citizens completed in the next three months if vaccines are available.

Kuwait health minister Bassel Al-Sabah made the statement based on the country’s plan to vaccinate 300,000 people each month, state news agency KUNA reported.

Wider appointments will be open to provide the vaccine for children aged between 5 and 11 and the children at higher risk will be given priority, said Abdullah Al-Sanad, spokesman of Ministry of Health ministry.

The vaccination for this age group was decided on the studies of relevant international bodies and organizations, Al-Sanad added.

The Kuwaiti health ministry will spare no effort to protect children and ensure their health and safety, he noted.
