The clinic gives children aged 3 to 17 Sinopharm vaccine and gets them checked for side effects. Officials said 900 children will take part in the trial.

Dr Nawal Al Kaabi, chairwoman of the National Covid-19 Clinical Management Committee, who is leading the study, said "We want children and parents to understand every step of the process and also to know that we will be with them, supporting them, answering every question they may have, at any time," she said.
