The UAE's official app for all Covid-19 test results noted that people recovering from Covid-19 get a 90-day exemption to get a booster dose.

"If you had Covid-19 (2 positive PCR test results), you will get a 90-day exemption, after which you can get your booster dose or your vaccinations. Kindly contact the health authority in your Emirate for further clarification or your nearest vaccination centre," Al Hosn said.
