Dr. Alawi Sheikh Ali, Deputy Director of the DHA, urged everyone to get the jab, reiterating how the vaccine is crucial in reducing the risk of infection and hospitalisation.

He added that more than 2.3 million people in Dubai have received the vaccine so far, with 83 per cent of the eligible population receiving their first jab, and 64 per cent of both doses.

United Arab Emirates has administered at least 13,684,429 doses of COVID vaccines so far. Assuming every person needs 2 doses, that’s enough to have vaccinated about 70% of the country’s population according to Reuters.
