UAE Covid vaccines: 3,451 doses administered in 24 hours
The country has administered over 5.5 million doses so far.
UAE has vaccinated 3,451 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 5,557,793. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 56.19.
Vaccines in use so far require two doses, and experts say especially don’t let your guard down after the first dose.
What experts also need to learn: The vaccines are highly effective at preventing symptomatic COVID-19, especially severe illness and death — but no one yet knows how well they block spread of the coronavirus.
Healthcare professionals note that the country’s robust vaccination drive has been instrumental in keeping the numbers in check. Medics are also hopeful that the country will witness a slump in Covid-19 cases soon.
