The first UAE COVID-19 vaccine, Hayat-Vax is seen rolling off a production line. The UAE and China struck a deal on Monday to permit Abu Dhabi's Group 42 and Julphar to manufacture the Hayat-Vax.

Officials said production could hit 2 million doses per month as Ras Al Khaimah drug maker Julphar is already rolling off a production line at Julphar's main plant in RAK.

"We believe that every person has the right to obtain the vaccine without discrimination," he said.
