The health ministry, in cooperation with the concerned health authorities and federal and local authorities, was keen to provide the best preventive services for members of society during this exceptional period, including providing vaccination service against COVID-19, and facilitating procedures for obtaining the vaccine.
The health sector said the vaccine has become available in various regions of the country, in addition to the availability of mobile clinics service to provide adequate care by specialists to those living in areas far from cities, and the cooperation of the private health sector in this regard, which contributed to supporting national efforts to reach the stage of recovery.
The authorities said, “Today we see the fruit of efforts, as we are pleased to announce that the UAE is at the forefront of the rate of vaccine distribution to become the first country in the world in distributing COVID-19 vaccine per 100 people.
“This achievement is a testament to the success of the national vaccination campaign and the state's proactive approach to achieving a sustainable recovery.”

The health authorities said, “Adhering to all the vaccine doses and to all recommended precautionary measures, such as wearing a mask, social distancing and washing hands, would stop the spread of COVID-19 virus in the society.”
The total number of doses provided up to Saturday stands at 2,426,793 with a rate of vaccine distribution of 24.54 doses per 100 people.

The case dates back to last February, when reliable information was forwarded to the Anti-Narcotics Department at Dubai Police about a person consuming narcotics and psychotropic substances and possessing a quantity of them in his house in the Palm Island area in Dubai.
The story did not end here but developed from rape into drugs and the victim ended up at the hands of Dubai Police who referred her to the Hemaya International Centre of Dubai Police’s General Department of Anti-narcotics for rehabilitation.
