Dr Ahmed bin Muhammad al Sa’eedi, Minister of Health, said on Wednesday that the sultanate is relentlessly communicating with approved international agencies to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as it becomes available. 

“Oman continues to coordinate with the major companies involved in producing vaccines. We will obtain the vaccine once it is available,” he said. He added that the procurement of vaccine depends on international accreditation of the vaccines, their safety and their readiness for use.
