Saudi Arabia to make COVID-19 vaccinations mandatory for all workers

The Saudi Arabian Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development said on Friday that all public and private sector workers wishing to attend a workplace will be required to have taken a COVID-19 vaccination, without specifying when this would be implemented.

“Receiving a coronavirus vaccine will be a mandatory condition for male and female workers to attend workplaces in all sectors (public, private, non-profit),” the ministry said on Twitter.

It encouraged workplaces to start preparations to ensure all employees receive a vaccination.

“The ministry will soon clarify the mechanisms of the decision and its implementation date,” it said.
