Sputnik vaccine rollout begins

MANAMA: Citizens and residents have been urged to sign up for the Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine.

The Health Ministry announced yesterday that registrations had opened for the Russian vaccine – the fourth to be approved for emergency use, after Sinopharm, Pfizer-BioNTech and Covishield (AstraZeneca).

“This is in line with the kingdom’s comprehensive Covid-19 response, and is part of its ongoing national vaccination campaign,” said a ministry statement yesterday.

People, who can choose the vaccine they wish to receive, can register for the vaccination online at healthalert.gov.bh or via the ‘BeAware’ Bahrain mobile application.

All four are available free of charge to citizens and residents.

The ministry emphasised that after completing the online registration process, individuals will be contacted via SMS text message to receive appointment details for their first dose of the vaccination.
