The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) will begin, as of Wednesday, September 15, 2021, administering Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine booster doses, approved in the State of Qatar, for high-risk individuals who had their second dose of the vaccine above eight months ago.

On August 24, 2021, MOPH approved of giving a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines to people with weak immune system, since it has become clear that two doses are not enough to induce immunity against the virus.
