UAE Covid-19 vaccine: 87,720 residents vaccinated in a day
UAE's vaccination administration rate is the second highest globally.
The UAE has vaccinated 87,720 residents against Covid-19 in the last 24 hours.
The country's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said the total doses administered now stands at 2.42 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 24.54.
The UAE's vaccine administration rate is the second highest globally after Israel.
Meanwhile, the country's compulsory Covid-19 PCR testing for unvaccinated government employees has been expanded to include teachers.
Teachers and all staff of the Ministry of Education need to take a Covid-19 test every 14 days. Fully vaccinated employees are exempted from the requirement.
Earlier, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources had announced that all unvaccinated employees of the UAE's ministries and federal government departments must undergo a PCR test for Covid-19 every seven days.
