Doctors are encouraging UAE residents to take the jab without getting anxious about the mild side effects that may occur in some cases.

The UAE has administered 125,447 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in the past 24 hours.

The country's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said the total doses administered now stands at 7.6 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 76.8.

Vaccine side-effects such as pain, redness, fever etc are normal signs that our bodies are building protection against the virus and are nothing to worry about, medics said.

With the UAE going all out in administering Covid-19 vaccinations to all eligible individuals, doctors are encouraging UAE residents to take the jab without getting anxious about the mild side effects that may occur in some cases. They say these normally subside soon.

The Covid-19 vaccination booth at Abu Dhabi's Galleria Mall, Al Maryah Island is also open to all residents wanting to take the jab. The facility supports the national vaccination programme, officials announced on Monday.

The Galleria Al Maryah Island management said the opening up of the vaccination booth is part of their dedication to providing a safe environment for the community.
