The rumors and talks about the fines and penalties for not receiving the Covid-19 vaccination came to the end after Jawazat’s clarification.

However, he also said that only vaccinated people will be allowed to enter shopping malls from 1st August. He also said that many agencies are working together to ensure the health of the residents and citizens and violators would be dealt strictly.
