She added that the registration for vaccination is still and urged people to help children make registrations and received their vaccination shots. To contain the spread of Covid 19, Kuwait has decided to shut down all the activities for children including summer clubs which were scheduled to start from July 25 until further notice.

Back in March this year, Bassel Al-Sabah Health Minister announced the resumption of studies at schools from September. He further affirmed that by that time all the students, teachers, and the administrative bodies would have completed their vaccinations by then.
