Firefighters in Ajman have received the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine that’s being administered to the country’s frontline heroes.

Brig Abdulaziz Al Shamsi, Director-General of the Ajman Civil Defence, was among the officers from the department who received the jab.

He hailed the vaccine, saying it will help keep frontline heroes safe from the coronavirus.

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

On November 3, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, received his first dose.

Lieutenant-General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior; Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation; and Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, have received the jabs as well.

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.
