More Information

This verb can also be used in the context of vaccination:
For administering the vaccine, [...] it's more common to say simply javtIm raS'IS Qay Qel, since, in a medical context, the verb Qay normally implies that a Hergh QaywI' was involved.

(message to Lieven L. Litaer, February 28, 2021; for Dr. Veller's Brasilian vacination campaign)

Qay is also the pronunciation (not the name) of the letter Q (upper case Q). (Marc Okrand at qep'a' 2009, see Alphabet)
