The Ministry of Health (MoH) is awaiting the final approval from the State Audit Bureau of Kuwait to finalize its contract with the Moderna Company to receive a supply of one million vaccine doses in various stages, at a cost of up to KD12 million, Al Qabas daily reported, quoting sources.

The vaccine supply will help to reach community immunity in Kuwait in a short period, along with the batches of Pfizer and Oxford vaccines.
