Saudi Arabia releases vaccine protocol for Hajj • As Sheikh Sudais receives Covid vaccine jab





The Ministry of Health has decided to require all external pilgrims wishing to perform Hajj this year to obtain two doses of WHO-approved vaccine for COVID-19.

The Hujjaj will be required to receive the second dose of the vaccine before arriving in the Kingdom at least one week before Hajj.

The Hujjaj will also need to obtain a certified and negative test of the COVID-19 PCR test, 72 hours before their arrival in the Kingdom.

The Ministry will also require all pilgrims to be subjected to a 72 hours of Mandatory Quarantine, which will only end after a negative PCR test.
