‘It was so easy’: 100-year-old Emirati received Covid-19 vaccine


- Advertisment -

The UAE government has been encouraging its residents and citizens to take the free vaccine against the deadly coronavirus. It has set up vaccine centres all across the country to make the vaccine available for all sectors. Currently, the country has already administered 2 million doses of the vaccine. Chinese-made Sinopharm and Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines are currently available in the country. 

Yesterday, the country has also approved the Russian vaccine Sputnik V for emergency use. 

Sabha Salem Hamdan Al Diri, a 100-year-old Emirati, has received the first shot of the vaccine at the Al Quaa Healthcare Centre, run by the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA). 

“It was so easy, and I have no complaints,” she was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times. 

“I would like to take the chance and thank our prudent leadership for making the Covid-19 vaccine available to everybody,” she added. 

She said that a team of medical experts examined her medical condition first before taking the shot. The procedure was also made to ensure that she could safely take the vaccine against the coronavirus. 

“Everything was fine, and I was eligible and fit to take the first dose,” she said.
