This takes the rate of doses to 196.28 per 100 people.
UAE residents can now book Covid-19 tests and vaccinations through an online platform and mobile app — Okadoc.
With Okadoc's platform, patients can schedule Covid-19 tests based on their convenience. Covid-19 vaccination bookings are also available from a wide range of hospitals and clinics, including Emirates Hospital, Medcare, Valiant Clinic & Hospital and HealthPlus.
Meanwhile, the World Health Organization says clinical trials are underway to evaluate eight nasal spray vaccines that target Covid-19.
The most advanced effort so far by China’s Xiamen University, the University of Hong Kong and Beijing Wantai Biological Pharmacy has completed phase-2 trials.
