Saudi Arabia launches ‘Health Passport’ for COVID-19 vaccine recipients

Saudi Health Minister Tawfig F. Al Rabiah and Saudi Data and Artificial Intelligence Authority (SDAIA) chairman Abdullah Al-Ghamdi announced the launch of “health passport” service via Tawakkalna application to identify residents who received the COVID-19 vaccine.

This service aims to confirm that Saudis and expatriates have received all doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and thus become immune to the virus.

The minister called on all Saudis to receive the vaccine, confirming that more vaccination centers will be opened soon across the Kingdom.

Al-Ghamdi said the passport will be issued to those completing the two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, adding that the Kingdom is one of the world’s first countries to launch the health passport.

Dr. Al-Rabiah thanked Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman and Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman for their care and continuous interest in preserving the health and safety of citizens and expatriates, as well as on taking all preventive precautions to protect them from coronavirus and stem the spread of the disease.
