Al-Abd Al-Aly also said that no side effects of the vaccine have been detected so far.
“The indicators of recording confirmed cases, recoveries and critical cases in the Kingdom are moving toward positivity and decline,” he told reporters.
Saudi Arabia started its inoculation campaign on Dec. 17 and was the first Arab country to use the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
Saudi Arabia confirmed 176 new cases on Sunday, raising the total to 364,929 cases, of which 1,919 are active cases still receiving medical care, and 319 critical cases.
