The shot re-exposes the body to antigens, which strengthens immunity to a level that allows it to recognise the virus and fight it off.

The ministry said that societal behaviour is of great importance as it plays a vital role in protecting everyone form the spread of the coronavirus and its variants.

The positive role played by members of society and their adherence to the preventative measure is on of the most important factors in UAE’s success in decreasing the number of infections.
