The country's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said the total doses administered now stands at 8.39 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 84.84.
The national vaccination campaign in UAE is also progressing at an accelerated pace with more than 7.9 million vaccine doses provided so far throughout the country, said Abdullah Al-Basti, Secretary General of The Executive Council of Dubai and Vice Chair of the Steering Committee of the C40 Leadership Group for South and West Asia.

The UAE’s vaccination campaign, which commenced in December 2020, provides free vaccination to the public as part of efforts to promote a lasting recovery from the pandemic. Dubai currently provides a choice of three vaccines to the community: Pfizer-BioNTech, Oxford-AstraZeneca and Sinopharm.
