Hajj 2021: Pilgrims must be vaccinated against Covid-19

Saudi Arabia- The Saudi Ministry of Health has announced that the faithful who want to perform the annual Hajj pilgrimage this year will need to prove that they’ve been vaccinated against Covid-19.

The statement did not specify whether the Hajj, which traditionally draws some 2 million pilgrims from across the world, would again exclude pilgrims from outside the Kingdom to prevent the contagion.

Last year, Saudi officials permitted a very limited number of pilgrims already within the country to perform the Hajj amid the surging pandemic.

The five-day pilgrimage starts this year at the end of July.
