The Bahrain News Agency reported on Saturday that the Bahraini authorities have agreed to use a booster dose of the (Sputnik-V) vaccine to prevent coronavirus, the first time that a third dose of the Russian vaccine has been approved.
The agency said that the national medical team to tackle the Corona virus announced that the booster dose was available to those who completed six months of taking the second dose of the (Sputnik-V) vaccine for the age group of 18 years and over.
Bahrain and the UAE have already approved a third booster dose of the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine.
COVID-19 cases are declining in Bahrain and are currently at 3% of their peak, with an average of 95 new infections recorded per day, according to a Reuters report on COVID-19.
The total number of cases registered in Bahrain since the start of the pandemic has reached 272,709, and deaths related to the virus have reached 1,388.
Bahrain has given nearly 2.5 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines so far, enough to vaccinate about 76 percent of its population of about 1.7 million people, according to the World Bank, assuming that every citizen needs two doses.
