A Chinese-made vaccine, the Sinopharm vaccine is being distributed by SEHA and Mohap at their locations all over the country.
India-made AstraZeneca arrived in Dubai earlier in February. It will be made available in the emirate as part of DHA’s commitment to provide the public with a choice of different vaccines. It will be available at the One Central Vaccination Centre.
After hosting trials of this Russian vaccine, the Sputnik V was made available by the UAE for emergency use only. Study results have demonstrated the effectiveness of the vaccine in generating a strong antibody response against the virus, as well as its compliance with international safety and effectiveness standards.
