Covid vaccine UAE: 53,836 doses administered in 24 hours
The UAE's rate of doses per 100 people now stands at 65.89.
The UAE has administered 53,836 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 6.51 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 65.89.
A top official on Saturday announced that some fully recovered Covid patients can take the vaccine "directly".
Dr Farida Al Hosani, spokesperson for the UAE’s government health sector, said: “If the infection was mild or without symptoms, individuals can take the vaccine directly.
"However, if the infection was moderate to serious, we recommend they conduct an antibody test to identify their immunity levels. If their immunity against the virus is insufficient, then they can take the vaccine."
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization has insisted that there was no reason to stop using AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine after several countries suspended the rollout over blood clot fears.
