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.”

“The vaccination helps reduce the chances of more mutations and variables,” it said.
