The national drive witnessed a vast turnout from people in the Sultanate’s different Governorates as the preliminary data of the first and second day indicated.

It is worth to mention that the campaign mainly helps in mitigating and eliminating the disease as well as promoting the immunity system thus maintaining a measles-free society.

Ensuring the safety and health of community individuals, the Ministry calls on all people in the Sultanate aged 20 to 35 years to visit the nearest vaccination site in order to get vaccinated, free of cost, as per scheduled dates.

The Ministry further calls upon all to take the information from the MOH reliable sources or the MOH’s contact center, paying no attention to rumors.
