UAE Covid vaccination doses cross 4 million
The UAE's vaccination administration rate is the second highest globally.
The UAE has vaccinated 158,786 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 4 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 40.53.
Pfizer Inc has withdrawn an application for emergency-use authorisation of its Covid-19 vaccine in India that it has developed with Germany’s BioNTech, the company announced on Friday.
India’s drugs regulator declined to accept Pfizer’s request for approval without a small local trial on the vaccine’s safety and immunogenicity for Indians.
Meanwhile, a new study in the UK has revealed that while many people have reported aftereffects of the Pfizer jab, the most common symptoms are of a non-serious nature.
Most symptoms happen in the first two days after vaccination, with headache, fatigue and chills or shivers being the most common, according to the findings of the ongoing ZOE Covid Symptom Study app released on Thursday.
