Kuwait opens 1st drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination center
Kuwait inaugurated on Sunday a drive-through vaccination center to speed up nationwide inoculation.
Located at Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah Causeway in the capital Kuwait City, it is the first drive-through vaccination center in Kuwait, representing the continuous efforts of the Ministry of Health to accelerate vaccination in the Arab country, the ministry spokesman Abdullah Al-Sanad said.
Equipped with clinics and emergency chambers, and built by the Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) and other government institutions, it is also one of the largest vaccination centers in the country, Al-Sanad added.
The center covers an area of nearly 30,000 square meters and comprises 20 booths, enabling around 80 people to be vaccinated within three to four minutes by 200 medical workers, according to the spokesman.
Muhammad al-Ahmad, an engineer of KOC, said the center is designed to handle up to 5,000 cars per day.
