"We appreciate the efforts of the teams that worked hard to make our country one of the first countries to receive the vaccine," Sheikh Mohammed said.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has received a dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

"We ask God to protect everyone and heal everyone," Sheikh Mohammed said in a post shared on his official Twitter account.

He posted a photo in which he can be seen receiving the vaccine in his shoulder.

"We appreciate the efforts of the teams that worked hard to make our country one of the first to receive the vaccine for this virus. The future is always better and more beautiful in the United Arab Emirates," Sheikh Mohammed said.

The UAE's frontline heroes, ministers and top officials have been receiving the Covid-19 jab after the UAE granted approval for emergency use.

On October 16, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, received the vaccine. Minister of Cabinet Affairs Mohammad bin Abdullah Al Gergawi received it on October 31.

The vaccine, developed by China's Sinopharm, is now in the third and final stage of clinical trials and has so far been found safe and effective, according to authorities.
