Where can you receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the Kingdom?
There are COVID-19 vaccination centers across Saudi Arabia, including in Riyadh, the capital, Jeddah, Medina, and the Eastern Province. A new center is set to open in the Tabuk region.

The COVID-19 vaccine center was also opened in Medina’s Nujood Medical Center last week, where the Governor of Medina, Prince Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz, received his first dose of the vaccine, along with other Medina residents.
On Monday, the Governor of Saudi Arabia’s Tabuk region, Prince Fahad bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz, inspected the readiness of the region’s COVID-19 vaccine center, according to SPA.
The governor said that Tabuk region’s vaccination center “will soon begin receiving COVID-19 vaccines.”
Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health has approved the use of two more COVID-19 vaccines made by pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and Moderna, following the success of the Pfizer vaccination rollout.
The Kingdom detected 213 new COVID-19 cases and three deaths on Monday, bringing the total number of recorded cases in the country to 366,584.
