The Health Cabinet said that the government is now giving priority to persons who require a second dose. The government is awaiting shipments of more Covid-19 vaccines, including the first batches of Pfizer and others part of the Covax Facility of the World Health Organization.

Honestly you couldn't make this stuff up.

Hmmm, yesterday I received my first shot and no issues. Arrived about 11am thinking there would be a big queue but actually there were more stewards there than people wanting vaccine. I was in and out in under 30 minutes.

No, it is if you won't get it, which quite a bit different that not having got it yet.
