Residents can contact Seha at 80050 to request for the service.
Some categories of residents can get the UAE’s free Covid-19 vaccine at home. These include people of determination; those with chronic diseases; and the elderly.
Arabic daily Al Ittihad quoted an Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) official as saying that “special medical teams” are vaccinating these categories of residents in their homes.
Dr Marwan Al Kaabi, acting Group Chief Operations Officer of Seha, said the authority is also contacting people in these categories so as to give them the jab.
Residents can contact the Seha at 80050 to request for the service.
On Tuesday, a top official had said that the vaccine can be administered to senior citizens in their homes.
“Our message today is to a dear group, our elders. We have prioritised the availability of the vaccine to them,” said Dr Farida Al Hosni, spokesperson for the UAE health sector, as she addressed the weekly Covid-19 briefing on Tuesday.
“Help us protect you, we can visit you at home to assess your medical condition and provide you the vaccine.”
The UAE has already administered over 1.39 million vaccine doses to residents.
