UAE Covid vaccine: 106,589 residents vaccinated in 24 hours
UAE's vaccination administration rate is the second highest globally.
The UAE has vaccinated 106,589 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 2.67 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 27.07.
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.
Following the announcement, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain authorities issued similar directives.
Three vaccines are available in the UAE: Chinese Sinopharm, Pfizer-BioNTech and Russia's Sputnik vaccines.
