The same condition applies for performing the holy pilgrimage site of Islam to Mecca-Medina.

Saudi Arabia makes vaccine mandatory for devotees
The Saudi newspaper Okaz reports the circular signed by the Health Minister as “The Kovid-19 vaccination is mandatory for those wishing to visit the Hajj and it will be one of the many conditions for obtaining permission.” In 2020, the government had drastically reduced the number of Haj pilgrims due to Corona virus epidemic. This year’s Hajj will be held in the month of July.
Last year, Umra, which was postponed in March due to the Kovid-19 pandemic, resumed in October 2020. Let us tell you that 393,000 corona virus infection cases have been exposed in Saudi Arabia and 6,700 people have died due to Kovid-19. The government says that Kovid-19 vaccine doses have been administered to 5 million people in a country with a population of 34 million. Last month, the Haj Minister was removed from the post by the imperial government and Esam bin Saeed was brought in place of Mohammed Banten.
