The authorities said on Tuesday that all the COVID-19 vaccines available in the UAE are very effective in preventing severe symptoms, hospitalisation and reduce the mortality rate.
“This is very important to accelerate the pace of recovery and control of COVID-19,” authorities said in a weekly briefing on coronavirus situation across the UAE.
“Despite the confirmation of the spread of mutated strains worldwide, many studies have proven the effectiveness of vaccines in providing the necessary protection against them.”
Authorities urged resident to get vaccinated against the virus as the more people are vaccinated the less chances will be there for the virus to multiply, grow and spread from one person to another.
“The vaccination helps reduce the chances of more mutations and variables,” it said.
Residents were asked to get vaccinated as the national campaign for vaccination against COVID-19 continues.
Authorities said that all individuals aged sixteen and over must ensure that they receive the vaccine to protect themselves and their families and society.
