DHA announces that it is providing the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. It is part of DHA’s commitment to provide the public a choice of different vaccines.
The DHA distributed the new batch across DHA health centres, which are dedicated to administering the COVID-19 vaccine in Dubai.
The DHA said that Al Safa Health Centre and Nad Al Sheba Centre for Ladies are now open to the public.
Specialists on Monday urged everyone to get immunised against seasonal influenza as the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) also released the findings of the three-year “Dubai Study on the Incidence and Trends of Influenza.”
A Dubai Health Authority (DHA) official has released another set of guidelines for the safety of school-going pupils and students from the virulent novel coronavirus (COVID-19), which include taking a bath or washing any exposed part of their body upon arriving home.
The DHA reduced the cost of COVID-19 testing to make it more accessible to the public and encourage proactive medical examinations as a precautionary and preventive measure.
Al Mizhar, Al Safa and Al Mamzhar clinics will no longer accept patients at the Fever Clinic and patients are redirected to go to the other DHA primary healthcare centres instead if they get a fever or develop any infectious disease symptoms.
The test will be done on fully automated and highly sophisticated system using the Electro-chemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) method that uses plasma, or serum samples.
Residents with certain medical conditions can apply for exemption through Dubai Police’s website: www.dxbpermit.gov.ae and DHA’s General Medical Committee Office will process the request within five days.
