Dubai to end free Covid-19 vaccination campaign by end of 2021


- Advertisment -

Authorities in the UAE have answered some of the frequently asked questions regarding its free Covid-19 vaccinations for residents and citizens. 

In the Q&A broadcast by the Dubai Media Office, the panel said taking the Covid-19 vaccine is not compulsory. Residents and citizens can book the service through the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) app or by calling 800 342. 

The campaign will also last for one year. “We are supposed to end by December 2021 once we hit the target–our target is to vaccinate 70 percent of the population of Dubai,” it answered. 

The first phase of the vaccination is supposed to end by March 2021. In this phase, it covers certain categories only. 

The second phase, according to the Dubai Media Office, will kick off in April 2021. “However, if we could finish the first phase before March we will definitely open the vaccine to everyone who are locals and residents of Dubai,” Dr. Farida Al Khaja, CEO of Clinical Support Services and Nursing Sector, who seemed to be referring about the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, said. 

Residents who were afflicted with the virus can only get the vaccine three months post the infection.
