Bahrain has authorized the emergency use of the COVID-19 vaccine. It will be made available to frontline workers starting today, who may take the vaccine on a voluntary basis.
This is expected to protect frontliners from any dangers they may be exposed to due to the nature of their work.
The emergency use of the vaccine is in full compliance with the regulations and laws in force in the Kingdom of Bahrain that allow for exceptional licensing in emergency cases.
The emergency use of the COVID-19 vaccine comes as a continuation of coordination with UAE, represented by the G42 company. Last September, the UAE announced the emergency use of the same vaccine for workers in the first line of defense.
