Al-Mandhari pointed out that some countries of the world have begun to give the third dose, which is the booster, but the organization calls for balance in that, explaining that until the citizens of countries that did not begin to vaccinate by giving the two doses, countries should be slow in giving the booster dose.
Al-Mandhari stressed that preventing employees from entering institutions in the event of not obtaining a Corona vaccine is determined by each country according to the nature of its infections.
