Breaking News: Saudi Arabia will immune all of its citizens and residents by providing Free Vaccines. Health Minister of Saudi Arabia said on Monday that Covid-19 vaccines will be free for all people living in the Kindom. He said during an interview on State TV.
The minister said that we hope to have enough vaccines to cover almost 70% of the country’s population by the end of 2021. State TV Ekhbariya tweeted.
In the meanwhile, Pfizer will ask U.S. regulators to allow emergency use of its COVID-19 vaccine, starting a process that could bring first shots as early as next month.
The announcement comes days after Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech offered preliminary data to suggest its vaccine appears 95% protective.
Over the next few weeks, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and its scientific advisers will decide if there’s enough evidence to allow emergency vaccinations. If so, first supplies will be scarce and experts say it likely will be spring before there’s enough for early distribution.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious disease expert, has said in the meantime, citizens need to “double down on the public health measures” such as wearing a mask, social distancing, and avoiding travel and people outside the household during Thanksgiving.
