The initiative was launched in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Prevention with the goal of making the vaccine accessible to people who may struggle to go to a medical centre.

Hundreds of residents eligible for the service have already booked appointments using the free vaccine hotline — 800 700.

“Our teams work from 12pm to 7pm five days a week,” said Khulood Al Ali, head of the home care section at the social services department.

Elderly and disabled family members and domestic workers can also be vaccinated against the disease by the care teams.
