UAE aims to vaccinate all residents to achieve herd immunity


- Advertisment -

In a bid to achieve herd immunity, which will help to bring down the number of Covid-19 cases, the authorities in the UAE aim to vaccinate the entire residents against the deadly virus. 

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), on Tuesday, said that in this way, they will be able to control the spread of the virus and reduce its local transmission. 

“The national vaccination program campaign aims to ensure that more than 50 percent of the UAE’spopulation receives the vaccine in the first quarter of 2021,” NCEMA announced. 

“Every individual who takes the vaccine is actively participating in the efforts to combat and overcome this pandemic and leads us to a recovered society,” it added. 

Currently, there are three vaccines registered in the country, namely Sinopharm, Pfizer-BioNTech, and most recently, Sputnik. 

“The UAE launched the national vaccination campaign after confirming its safety, and after successfully exceeding its needed scientific phases that spanned a year. It meets international standards in the manufacture of vaccines,” NCEMA said.

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
