Many residents are spotting a sign on their Alhosn app that looks like a crossed-out syringe. Should you be concerned when you spot this?
According to the developers of the app, the sign indicates a temporary vaccine exemption for people who have recently recovered from Covid-19.
“It automatically appears for users who have tested positive for Covid-19 and recovered. It means that you are exempt from [having to take] any vaccinations for 90 days, which is the exemption period. This means that the requirements are the same as vaccinated individuals,” Alhosn explained on a social media post.
After 90 days, the user will be allowed to take their Covid-19 vaccination.
“Therefore, when the icon appears, it means that a person who has recovered from COVID-19 is exempted and is not required to take any vaccinations for 90 days. After this, you can take your remaining COVID-19 vaccine [shots]. May everyone recover safely,” it added.
