Number of centres to be increased
In a move aimed at further accelerating the mass vaccination campaign, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said that work is underway to increase the number of healthcare centres providing the vaccine in the emirate.
The DHA said the One Central COVID-19 Vaccination Centre it has set up in the Dubai World Trade Centre has the capacity to serve 4,000 people per day.
In addition, the authority has launched Covid-19 vaccination facilities at two new health centres — Al Twar and Mankhool.
It has also established three centres dedicated to providing vaccinations for frontliners at Latifa, Dubai and Rashid hospitals. The new facilities spread across the emirate are part of the DHA’s efforts to raise vaccination capacity in the emirate and enhance access for the public.
Registration and appointments are done via the DHA app and the toll-free number 800-342.
