Bahrain has launched mobile units providing home vaccinations against COVID-19 for the elderly and people with special needs.

Bahrain’s official news agency BNA said that the service is the first of its kind in the region and is offered by medical teams who make home visits to the people who cannot make it to the vaccination centres and give them the jabs.




The Health Ministry said it compile needs of the elderly and people with special needs who have registered on its website to receive the vaccine.

Mobile units

The ministry added that it has devised a mechanism for conducting mobile units across the kingdom and coordinating with the applicants’ families to notify them of the vaccination teams’ visit appointments.

Last month, Bahrain started vaccinations against COVID-19. The campaign aims to vaccinate a total of 1.5 million people including citizens and expatriates in the kingdom.
