5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the UAE
The UAE has reached an incredible milestone in its quest to vaccinate the population of the country against COVID-19.
It was announced on Saturday by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) that 103,469 had been vaccinated in the last 24 hours, taking the total amount of doses administered to five million.
This milestone in the vaccination process bodes well for the nation’s aim to vaccinate half of the population by the end of March and also showcases the UAE as one of the leaders in the world in vaccination rates.
At present, there are four COVID-19 vaccinations being administered in the UAE.
The first vaccine to be approved in the UAE was the Sinophram vaccine, followed by the Pfizer vaccine being permitted in Dubai towards the end of last year.
In January, Russia’s Sputnik V was approved for emergency use. And now, just recently, the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine has been approved in Dubai.
