Over 5 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine administered in the UAE

In the last 24 hours, the country has vaccinated 103,469 residents against the deadly Covid-19. 

The Ministry of Health and Prevention in the UAE said the total doses administered now stands at over 5 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 50.61. 

The country is planning to vaccinate at least 50 percent of its residents within the first quarter of the year. 

The vaccine is made available for free to every resident aged above 16 years. 

However, the authorities said they are prioritizing to give the jab to the following sectors: elderly, people of determination, and those with chronic health conditions.
