Kuwait Ministry of Health has launched the bivalent vaccination campaign against Covid-19, indicating the campaign will last for three months starting from Feb 2, 2023 and the vaccine will be free of charge.

The bivalent vaccine is aimed at improving resistance of individuals, boosting the effect of primary doses and minimizing the harmful effect of Covid-19; thereby, limiting the chances of confinement in intensive care units (ICUs), especially those most vulnerable to infection. The bivalent vaccine strengthens protection against the different strains of Covid-19 including Omicron, the ministry explained.

In a recent press statement, the ministry urged citizens and expatriates, who are 18 years old and above, to visit one of the 16 designated vaccination centers from 3:00 pm to 8.00 pm Sunday to Thursday depending on their address in the civil identification card.
