The agreement was co-signed by KSRelief Assistant General Supervisor Ahmed Bin Ali Al-Bayez and Unicef’s regional chief field officer, Eltayeb Adam.
Abdulrahman Al Owais, Minister of Health and Prevention, says country is approaching 7 million vaccines in more than 205 medical centres in different regions of the country.
This is with reference to the article “Mobile clinics in Dubai to bolster COVID-19 vaccination drive” (Mar.8, 2021). This is a brilliant initiative by the UAE government. Instead of waiting for people to come for the vaccines, the government, is taking the vaccines to the people. This is the only way to fight COVID-19 and defeat it.
The units will provide 'mobile and rapid solutions for early diagnosis and vaccinations' in different regions of the Emirate of Ajman.
Abu Dhabi has issued fresh guidelines for attending events in the emirate.
The UAE was able to provide more than 6 million doses to date and to provide the vaccine to 3,614,070 people, completing 46.61% of the target category. The vaccine has been provided to 61.41% of elderly people, the current targeted category.
The certificate issued by China will have details about the holder’s COVID-19 vaccination information and coronavirus test results, the Department of Consular Affairs under China’s foreign ministry said on its website.
Nandan Nilekani, the co-founder of Infosys, said Asia’s economic recovery is not far away, provided the pace of vaccination is increased so the region arrives at a herd immunity.
Australia last month began inoculating its 25 million population but the immunisation drive is running behind schedule as officials slowed vaccinations after two elderly people were inadvertently given four times the recommended dose.
The drive will begin with a focus on the oldest people in the community, generally over the age of 80, Health Minister Faisal Sultan said. "We will work our way down in coming days," Health Minister Faisal Sultan said.
